Quotes

Arnie: It's Funny, I guess Sometimes Something that you think is dead, turns out to be alive, And Sometimes Something that you think is alive turns out to be dead, And Sometimes you think you gotten away from the dark. Trouble is, you never really do. It's always there, Everytime you close your eyes... Inside.

bad
11 July 2010 | by steven_kapoSee all my reviews

too predictable, the plot was very uninspired, the special effects look so bad, that even my friends and i had better zero dollar effects in our home movies, the ending was gross. i understand this movie may look innocent, but they had broke copyright laws, too, as in , the trailer features quiet riots "terrified" and the movies budget no money for the rights. yes, i did waste my time watching this movie, and i regretted it. now to be honest, for what it was, it wasn't the worst, i mean at least some the demonic voices are decent, but this movie has no place in history, period. now this is without a doubt benjamin carrs worst movie, not to say kraa wasn't bad, but at least that one was good enough to have a cult following, but anyways, this movie has nothing to offer, and im so gld its not on DVD!
