Boring........
29 September 2001 | by walker_eveSee all my reviews

Tried to contact Scott to state that this movie is dull. IMDB won't let me though. I am way over the age of twelve. Over twice that even and I LOVE movies. I was nervous to see this movie for a long time because I thought the acts towards women might be too brutal and frightening. I finally forced myself to watch it with a friend. I had to apologize for how lame it was. No suspense. Nothing scary. Boring. The trailer and movie cover will kick your ass. Go no further though. it is a waste of your time. maybe someday it will be a famous cult film of some the the worst, famous cult films ever made. Either that or just watch it cause that 'Twisted Sister' guy is in it and you're curious.
