Not the best out there, but worth watching...
25 April 2007 | by johntcaldwellSee all my reviews

Maybe it is the string of terrible horror flicks I have seen lately, but I actually liked this movie. Most of the stuff of late has been plagued with low budget effects, completely incompetent acting, and lines that made you cringe.

I don't know why so many hated this film, because the acting was good, story was decent, and effects OK. It may not be a blockbuster, but it was definitely worth watching once you have seen all of the other big name movies.

PS: My wife felt there were too many characters so it was hard to keep up with them all.
