A terrible film, do not watch if you have a soul.
21 September 2001 | by Static_MattSee all my reviews

TERRIBLE, TERRIBLE, TERRIBLE. A downright bad movie with no redenmning value whatsoever. If you look up the term cliche in the dictionary you will find "see: Killer Instinct". And continuitity errors? you bet. Good acting? If you think Kevin Costner is a quality actor, sure. Special Effects? Who needs them. Senseless nudity with no purpose whatsoever? You bet your ass. Clever kills? Sure glass that defies the laws of physics. If you find this movie at your local movie store, rent it and burn it. This is the type of film that ruins the horror genre. Once again, please, please, please, do not give money to the wannabee filmakers who made this trash.
