Fell flat
8 May 2014 | by strizbizSee all my reviews

OK, I don't want to say this movie had a "great " plot because the actual events were horrible and tragic. But the source material and all the information surrounding it was enough to give to writer and director what they needed to make this a chilling , horror classic. Though I was actually a little young at the time of these events , seeing the story on an episode of "very bad men " on ID channel made me want to take a closer look at this story. Anyway to be honest, this felt so much like a b movie, the acting, directing, the editing, even the music , that even though I sat through it, I didn't feel the performances where believable. I see some of the reviewers here are commending Scott Anthony Leet for his acting but I just didn't get it. It was a little over the top at times but forgettable. I don't believe you need a big Hollywood budget to make this movie great because it doesn't require a bunch go cgi effect or anything. It needs a great director. And a major part of what really happened was left out. I just felt like this was a missed opportunity. This movie just wasn't as dark as it needed to be in light of the tragedy of the real life events. The over all tone was just amateurish.
