Boring in every way
30 August 2017 | by James SmithSee all my reviews

A complete waste of time. Who funds this crap? There is no gore, violence, just a bunch of bad tats cgi crawling all over the tattooed girl the whole movie and some sex. That's it. I was hoping it would at least build up to a decent climax and that didn't even happen. This movie was so bad and boring I admit I had to fast forward part of it. I saw this movie on netflix- most of the horror movies on netflix are about 80% bad but this is by far the worst I've seen.The only comfort was when it was over.
