You've gotta be kidding me.....
4 September 2010 | by bob_megSee all my reviews

I have to disqualify this review immediately because I didn't see this whole film. Just the first 40 minutes, and wow is it dreck.

Very rarely are the two-line summaries on the DirecTV guide accurate, but in this case it is. Shrink trapped in mental asylum on the verge of being shut down with insane, indestructible killer with apparent super-human strength. Killer makes Michael Myers look absolutely verbose and interesting in comparison.

That's it. Wow.

And Judd Nelson's in this crap...and I thought Anthony Michael-Hall's career was in the toilet.
