Utter tedium
13 August 2005 | by alanstrawbridgeSee all my reviews

This abomination of a movie fails to entertain on every level and contains no redeeming moments. It even fails to qualify as a slice of low budget kitsch and is less interesting than an episode of a poor afternoon soap opera. The majority of the film consists of the main character explaining her evil motives to her daughter in such long tedious scenes that you find yourself checking your watch and thinking about what you need from the supermarket during her endless diatribes. The script, which concerns itself entirely with exposition and zero action (in what is supposed to be a thriller) seems to have been written to enable the director to move the camera as little as possible during the interminable 83 minutes running time.

RECOMMENDED!
