Did You Know?


Because the location used for the Gordon House was donated to production and filled with lots of expensive things the only practical blood seen in the film appears on Chris after being bitten by Jeremy. All other blood is realized through the use of CPU intensive fluid and particle simulations, ray tracing and global illumination techniques. The "black pudding" seen coming out of Mrs. Gordon's mouth was always with either a furni-pad or other protective material underneath Debbie Rochon to protect the white Berber carpet used throughout the house.

So the acting isn't always great, but the story is...
25 February 2013 | by See all my reviews

I know this has a bad rating, but I enjoyed the build of suspense and the fact that we got to know the characters a bit better. It was, on the whole, predictable but how many movies of this genre aren't?

If you give this one a chance and allow yourself to be drawn into the world of the characters (their arguments and issues ARE believable) you might actually find yourself enjoying it. I actually cared about Lucy's well being by the end and thing that the woman who played this part was a reasonably good actor. I found the boyfriend annoying and wondered why she didn't just dump him at one point, but I suppose that aspect of the dynamic and relationship are believable as well.

It is what it is and as an 83 minute distraction, you could do worse.
