Please please don't watch this film.
11 April 2009 | by nospam-571See all my reviews

Please please don't watch this film.

I'll get to the point.

1. Its really slow (the film is only 1.5 hours. 1 hour of it is needless padding).

2. Its dull (it has 3 separate stories, each of which take about 10-15 minutes to get going, and then the "horror" part lasts about 1-2 minutes) 3. Its cliché (there is nothing you haven't seen before, which can be OK, except its SO cliché, there is no fear factor) 4. It has no scary bits (there is no suspense and because its slow, dull and cliché, its hard to feel scared. Even my girlfriend fell asleep and she scares really easy). The scariest part of this film is the cover.

5. It would be hard to direct a film more poorly than this. The director has attempted to copy other films and done so with no innovation or interest factor at all. This film probably will (and should) ruin the directors career. I don't like to be horrible, so if the director were prepared to openly apologise for this film, I'd gladly give him another chance. Otherwise he owes me 1.5 hours of my life).

6. Its the first film to make me feel angry at the waste of my life 7. Oh and its dull.

Please please don't watch this film. You will be disappointed.
