The worst movie I have ever seen
21 January 2005 | by hig912See all my reviews

I am a movie lover, and I really like horror films. This movie however, is the worst movie I have ever seen. The acting, plot, script, and director are terrible. The movie is so slowly paced that you could not pay me to watch it again. The opening seen alone takes practically 10 minutes to state it's purpose(it doesn't make much sense any way, so technically it doesn't even do that). The effects are virtually non existent, the dialogue is wretched, and anybody who is not brain-dead would be able to make a better film than this one.

Somebody told me it was going to be on TV for Halloween. It was reported that it was " the worst movie ever". I was excited to watch it, thinking that it would be bad in the way that classics like The Toxic Avenger or the myriad of slasher films from the 80s were. I was dead wrong! The only reason I watched the whole movie was because I didn't believe how incredibly terrible it was. There is a scene leading up to the "climax"(ugh!)that shows a man walking from one end of a wall or something to the other on-screen for practically 10 minutes in the dark.

Don't even waste your time with this movie and if you do,I guarantee you will never forget it. How this movie was ever produced is the 8th wonder of the world.
