I got this, lured by the title and general first impression, looking forward to a dark and brutal horror flick, though expectations weren't very high to begin with, this was a major let down. The portrayals of the characters were really bad and made me doubt that anyone involved in the making of this movie knew anything about insanity, homicidal madness or how to properly convey it. Watching the characters behave as they did I fought an urge to stand up and stomp around cursing them for being such idiots. And tacking on a sob story to the main antagonist's past in an attempt to make some kind of sense of his killing was laughable and shallow, not very well done either. The general production quality was fairly good though... the writing and acting, not so much. No suspense, no awe, little horror and scarce laughs. The makers of this movie have a lot to learn about horror before attempting it again.
