Some great moments but....
14 July 2006 | by gerryfettSee all my reviews

Basically this movie is not very good.

It had some well worked scenes that proved to be quite scary intermingled with a few laugh out loud moments.

But ultimately the bad outweighs the good.

The deaths severely lacked any imagination whilst the monster (being quite pathetic) was hugely under used.

The smell concept that adorns the title while being fairly original isn't explored properly within the horror context and is instead used more as a passing whiff than the stench of terror expected.

Worth watching because there are some very funny moments but don't expect much more than that.
