I wouldn't have even commented on this movie, but....
8 April 2010 | by innocuousSee all my reviews

I think I need to counterbalance some of the excessively positive reviews. Contrary to the overall rating, this is a bad movie.

For one thing, the acting is terrible. How much would it have cost to find some actual actors, or acting school students? These people just didn't know what they were doing half the time.

The direction is pretty bad, too. Lots of flashbacks, shaky cam, overcranked scenes, and film student wet dream shots. I mean, can't you just shoot the film and edit it? You're a budding director, not an artiste.

The story has a single good idea in it. (No, it's not the lesbian prologue.) Everything else is just pretty dumb. (And why is it that ALL college students in movies nowadays are so unpleasant? They're all just maladjusted, creepy, outspoken, crude misfits. This is not true in real life.) Surprisingly, the SFX are not bad, ranging from tolerable to pretty good. I guess that's where the budget went.

As far as nudity, it's obvious that the film maker(s) came up with a couple young ladies willing to do the lesbian scenes in a few hours, but that nobody else in the cast was willing to go for it. While the first few minutes of action are enjoyable, it really throws the whole tone of the movie off. Since it has very little to do with the remainder of the movie, I would have just skipped that aspect.

Overall, not good.
