Not that bad - actually quite enjoyable!
15 April 2006 | by thehyperborean-1See all my reviews

I thought this movie wasn't that bad at all. I picked it up in Tower Records for 5.99 euro and wasn't expecting much! I was pleasantly surprised that there are were a few scenes of heightened tension and the camera-work was even half decent. The story is a little weak and could do with a bit more exposition and polishing to fill in the gaps. All in all its adequate and effective.

The acting isn't that bad but is quite amateurish. The sets used are really good and could easily be reused in a big budget movie. Other stuff such as costumes and lighting are quite good.

The movie is shot on digital so it has that unnatural sharpness of digital movies which I personally hate but I got over it after a little while.

Overall, I would recommend it to fans of movies such as the Blair Witch Project as it requires a slight leap of imagination to get over the overall cheapness. Worth a watch at least!
