Fun horror
24 May 2012 | by lucybaily12See all my reviews

My boyfriend and I saw this film at the Bram Stoker Film Festival. We're both geeks and love low budget horror and we're always looking for something fun to watch.

I found it a fun little ride with a good mix of scary and funny moments nothing to deep but a good salute to other horror films.

Strong performances from the father played by (Jonathan Hansler) and the daughter (Nicola Posener) and loved the scene with the boyfriend(Brandon Francis).

I think it's well worth a watch.

Lucy
