Get The Nose-clips For This Stencher!
12 December 2010 | by ithinkmyemailaddressisSee all my reviews

I could watch Lexa Doig dust book shelves, so fortunately, not knowing she was in this monster of a movie, I was otherwise sparred the wasting of 2 hours of my precious life on this celluloid crap-heap of a flick. Although I doubt even she could have held my attention in this stencher.

Is this a fair review? Of course not. I actually only saw about 20 seconds of it! 18 seconds too much, I fear... Probably near the end, a scene that struck me as a bad rip from the Mummy movie, that looked like the angry-mummy-face-in-the-sand-storm scene. That's all it took, and I hit the "next-channel" button, musing to myself, like others have mentioned, that it had "Bad Sci-Fy Channel Movie" written all over it.

It was on "Show Case". I wonder what they would classify as a "Bottom-Of-The-Shelf-Case" movie on a Saturday night, if this was the event of the evening? The mind recoils at the possibilities...

When are we as a civilization going to man-up and just start culling our archives of this crap? Stick with the bank commercials, Lexa. At least there's a little dignity in that pay-cheque.
