User Reviews

The poor man's Wicker Man
3 June 2007 | by sideriteSee all my reviews

It's not that it's a bad movie, it's that it is not good. Guy comes into village with secret; guy discovers secret; guy pays for it. The secret is not even that interesting.

Fred Durst from Limp Bizkit plays a secondary role in this one. He basically plays the wimp, which is funny enough.

The problem with the film is that there isn't much information in it. I mean, I can hardly find anything to fill 10 lines of text with. It is not terribly boring, but it is boring. It is thrilling, but not enough. The subject barely makes sense and, considering it does, it is neither original nor very interesting.

Bottom line: not worth viewing.
