Did You Know?

Goofs

Aster flower does not have 21 petals; as any biologist knows, every single aster flower has exactly five petals. What is commonly perceived as an aster flower, is in fact a large inflorescentia composed of dozens of small flowers, tubular (with all five petals fused together to form a pipe) at the centre of the inflorescentia, ligular (where the fused petals form a small tongue, resembling a single flower petal) at the perimeter. The plant family to which an aster belongs, known nowadays as "Asteraceae" (aster-likes), was once labeled "Compositae" (composed) to underline this. See more »

Oh Boy .....
17 August 2011 | by rls0812See all my reviews

If I learned one thing from this movie, it is never judge a film by it's cover art, or critic blurbs.

The depicted killer looks like he would be cool to watch hacking and slashing his way threw his victims.

One problem. The killer on the cover is not in the movie. Another problem is the blurb reading ""Hostel meets the Silence of the Lambs in this Horrific Murder Mystery"".

I hate to break it to the reviewer, Stuart Alson, but this movie is no were close to the aforementioned films, is definitely not much of a horror film, and is not a murder mystery.

For me personally, this movie was very boring. It kept dragging on and on.

There was no mystery, they show exactly who the killer is from kill #1, and he is not the kind of person I would associate with a hack - and - slash film.

The kills were not creative at all. Very little was actually shown, and the blood & gore was minimalistic.

The acting was not so good. Some characters acted odd at times, while others gave a wooden performance.

Sound was OK for the most part, but the mics at times picked up the wind, and background noise ( air conditioners, traffic, e.t.c. ).

The lighting as I mentioned before, was not very well done, sometimes making it so dark it was hard to make out what was happening.

The special effects were limited to very basic stuff.

Over all this movie is not worth the time. I payed $3 for it new, but I feel like I was overcharged.

You know your in for a not so good movie when the opining cinematic for the companies, "Barnholtz" and "Wiseacre" are horrendous.
