The worst "film" I have ever seen
23 February 2010 | by oliver-sheaffSee all my reviews

This was far and away the worst film I have ever seen.

Four nights a week I have devoted my total attention to a film since I was 17. That was eleven years ago now. The mix of positive and negative reviews on IMDb.com made me want to make my own mind up about this film.

I couldn't do it. No metaphor or similie could describe how awful this is. Comparing it to having your fingernails pulled out while a pirhana with a powerdrill gave you a prostate examination would be too KIND to the film in question.

This was torture.

I could go on describing how awful this actually was, but I summise by saying that after ELEVEN YEARS watching 4 films a week, it was THIS film that made me join IMDb.com as a member (a website I use daily), SIMPLY to warn others about this horrendous assault on the senses that is referred to as 'Necrosis'.

To all those who sat through the entire thing, I pray for your very souls, and salute you for having a stroke or heart attack mid-film..... I presume you MUST have had one of the above or you wouldn't have go past the sixth minute.
