Good and bad...
4 June 2011 | by gaz1-540-393254See all my reviews

I watched this film having been given a reasonably high recommendation into it. I knew nothing about it apart from that!

As I was watching it there was definitely a sense that the film wasn't really as good as I was told! The acting wasn't too great and there were several points where there was a clear bit where the movie was using scenes to move the story forward. I guess that's what all films do, but it was a bit too blatant in this one!

Fortunately, the film was enough to keep me entertained despite a few moments of... well... hmmmmm.

As the story pans out it becomes a decent watch and the twists make it semi-worthwhile. If you like horror's you'll probably enjoy the watch, but if you've not got some kind of interest there... try another one!
