well its a kind of horror...
18 September 2020 | by ops-52535See all my reviews

Made by i guess semipros and civilian amateurism actors. its a kind of 1,2,3,4, every step in a row film about a sinister disorder made by a fungobacterivirus that has erupted within the walls of a senior care center, its spread via direct contact, e.g. kissing and biting, and the first spreader is a male nurse(its me???, kissed by a little ol lady.

its also the story about a adult group of adults that are somewhat connected to it all, and the crazy outrage starts spinning of, a bit original take i would say, its without any special effects, and use scream and sound as best as it can. musically its not much to tell, its a big minus the way the music has been edited.

but the humongous problem with the edition i saw was the sound quality, that appeared like two youghurt and a mile of fishing line to talk to one another with, like living in a box, a metal box, terribel and double terribel.

but if you are lucky they might work that out later, the filmographic impression are good, the acting are what i did expect considering economy, and the story do have some tense moments.

and if you are extremely patient you will be able to experience some sexual horror too!!! when and where i shall not say other than my adhd relative got the eyes wide open and making me start howling, so its a small recommend from the grumpy old man
