Really bad
28 April 2006 | by Roel ScheijdeSee all my reviews

I saw this film a week ago at the AFFF (Amsterdam Fantastic Film Festival) and it was (understatment) a bit disappointing. About half the audience left before the end, I left about 15 minutes before the end.

The picture quality is really awful, half the time you can't see what is going on, the filmmakers might say they did it to get a real grainy and dirty look, i blame it on lousy lighting. The sound is even worse, half the time you can't understand what they saying, but to be honest when you can they usually say really stupid and dumb things so you really don't miss much. And the sound of the killer bats is so awful, the woman next to me covered her ears.

The story of killer bats that turn people into zombies sounds like a fun guilty pleasure but is so badly executed with characters that are so boring that you just don't care about who lives and who dies.

This film has the distinction of scoring the lowest points in the audience poll at the AFFF ever for a screening and it deserves it.
