This movie had been in my watch list for quite some time because it sounded interesting and I like Nick Stahl and Rose Mcgowan…So to I decided to watch it today. I think this movie had potential, at the core, if it went a different way. Overall, I finished it and wish I chose something else to watch. I didn't like the camera work. A lot of the movie doesn't make sense until the end, which I don't mind/ was expecting, but I was hoping for the revelation or whatever at the end to be worth while, which I don't think it was, It made me understand somethings but it didn't make the movie any better. People were saying this movie was strange, I like strange but ugh no, this movie was just pretty crappy and i hate the feeling i have when i finish a movie that i didn't like, but I guess that's just the way it is.
