In the pantheon of bad movies there are some that stand out due to notoriety like "Plan 9 From Outer Space", cult favorites like "The Room" or just plain WTF like "Actium Maximus: War of the Alien Dinosaurs". These, or "Grade Z" movies are typically considered "so bad they're good" meaning you can enjoy them unironically because they transcend badness and come out the other end as something you need to see.
Make no mistake, this is not one of those movies. After Last Season is bad. Really bad. The acting is bad. The dialogue is bad. The sets are bad. The sound is bad. There is literally nothing good about it. And how this cost $5 million I will never know.
The story makes no sense. I've watched it twice now and I'm still not getting the whole point of... anything. Things just happen. People speak like aliens who know English but can't speak it properly to save their lives.
The sets are half the time just cardboard and sheets of paper. I'm not kidding. The MRI at the start? A bunch of cardboard boxes and paper. The MRI pictures on the wall? Just a bunch of printouts taped up. Doors are covered in paper for unknown reasons. Signs that are obviously just taped to the wall indicate business names. This was obviously shot in a house and in some warehouse somewhere but there are ways make this not quite so obvious.
It's not even enjoyable as a bad movie because it's just so inept without the putrid charm that "The Room" or "Birdemic: Shock and Horror" has.
Give this one a pass. You'll thank me later.
