Short on Action, Story and Interest
9 February 2020 | by brulemelanieeSee all my reviews

Every film that was part of this category was a disappointment.

A Sister has a bit of suspense but not enough to put you on the edge of your seat.

Brotherhood was incredibly boring.

NEFTA had a little bit of humor going for it.

Saria should have been in the documentary category-poorly done movie adaptation of the actual story.

The Neighbors Window...if you get off on peeping toms.

Awful collection of shorts, all weak story lines and/or acting.
