Oh dear...
8 April 2020 | by rocknrelicsSee all my reviews

The opening was quite impressive and I thought this had potential, but within 20 minutes it had disintegrated into garbage. The acting was truly appalling, and the special effects were not good! Had it been in more capable hands, with better actors, better director and a tighter script, This might have been OK, but as it stands, forget it.
