Worst movie I've ever seen for real ?
20 March 2017 | by See all my reviews

I actually created this account just to make this review. I've never ever seen such a bad acting Seriously the (Dad) is trying to be so cool all time so it gets embarrassing. His walking like his a bodybuilder and got this rough hard attitude against his family members so its just make you wanna crawl out of the skin AWFUL: Same with the mother absolutely ZERO actress and their dialog are so unnatural like their reading it from a book. Alsom their expressions doesn't fit what they're saying at all.

There's not even ONE moment where i even get a little scared all is so predictable.

I cant believe they got the permission to do a remake of this (cult movie) Don't see it just keep you're memories from the original MOvie.

Im honestly stunned how bad the (Parents) are its like a Joke.
