What a mess of a film.
2 July 2017 | by bobsucreSee all my reviews

I'm an avid horror fan and I've seen some pretty terrible films in my 35 years. This film takes the cake for being one of, If not the worst I've ever come across. The acting is beyond deplorable. The dialogue is laughable. Other reviews would have you believe this is some sort of misunderstood masterpiece, it is not. I'm left wondering how something so atrocious could be made and be so highly favored. I would strongly suggest passing this one up unless you don't mind wasting an hour and a half of your life.
