Such a Disappointment
7 August 2020 | by themooseisloose-18470See all my reviews

Reviewing films isn't easy, but making them can't either. So how do you earn a decent amount of backing, come up with an interesting concept, and have some directing/writing experience for a film to come out this bad? A horror time travel movie that feels like an 1980's Cronenburg film could be something that would be awesome and entertaining as well. One of the earliest flaws is the pacing. The first twenty two minutes and forty nine secomds sets up our lead and her mundane life. From there, she travels two hours backwards to go back to the date she had so she can destroy the front window. That is the pace at which the film takes to get to the action. I personally don't like the effects for the impact shifting. They look fake beyond belief and the lack of budget shows. On the hand, Peter Jackson Sam Rami, and George Romero had low budgets and made great films so this can't be a valid reason why. The acting is alright. The supporting cast is more interesting than the main lead which is frustrating because we're stuck with a tabula rasa that isn't given very much character development for the audience to care. I genuinely feel bad for the backers who funded this, because it couldn't have been worth waiting for a film like this.
