I read the user comments before I watched this movie, and I thought the film could not be as bad as everyone said. I was sorely mistaken, it was worse. I am a huge Horror fan, and a fan of Wes Craven as well. But this film doesn't even have the right to be placed in the genre, more less have Wes Craven's name on it.
The script, even if rewritten by a competent writer, will never be good. The whole premise of the movie was just unscary, uninteresting, and an unnecessary waste of the actors time. The actors in this film may have some talent, but it certainly can't be realized in a piece of garbage like this. The actress that plays the main characters sister in this film also play on the television show Becker starring Ted Danson. She has talent as a comedic actress, and it can been seen in that series. As for the other actors though, I don't know if they have talent at all. The other acting was equal to a poorly made porno movie. I could make a better film, and hire better actors, in my back yard with a 8mm camcorder.
In short, the movie is trash. It has no redeeming qualities. Not even worth the gas money to the video store, more less the rental fee.
