It's not THAT bad.
19 March 2009 | by Bill357See all my reviews

It's not that great either.

I thought it was better than a lot of the Saw knock offs and the pretentious political crap disguised as horror movies that I've been picking up lately at the Wal-Mart.

The dubbing was very poor and the plot was weak but I wasn't exactly bored to tears either. I think anyone who reads the back of the DVD box will pretty much know what to expect.

However, the cinematographer and production designers were first rate. Their work was reminiscent of the Italian films of the nineteen sixties and early seventies, Mario Bava etcetera. They should be in Hollywood making better movies.

Did anyone notice that after the lead actor's hair was scared white, he bore an uncanny resemblance to Bob Geldof?
