Don't let curiosity get the better of you, this movie sucks.
2 February 2011 | by lomidze-levanSee all my reviews

I watch a lot of b-grade horrors and i've grown to like the cheesy dialog, bad acting and cheap special effects... But this movie... My god. It's a miracle that I managed to sit through the movie to begin with, but when the film finally ended, i was angry. I wanted, no, demanded! for that hour and thirty minutes to be returned to me.

I watched this movie because 'House of Orphans' had a cool ring to it and i thought "If it's truly bad, at least i can laugh at it." It's so bad, that i couldn't laugh.

Their poor grasp of English and English grammar makes it more painful to watch, as put emphasis on all the wrong words. I also have a feeling that they originally wrote the script in Swedish and then just Google translated it into English.

I've warned you as best I can. Do NOT watch this movie.
