Beyond dreadful
25 October 2014 | by jackstupidjackSee all my reviews

This film has absolutely no merits whatsoever. The dialog is dire, the acting is below pre-school levels.

The characters have zero likability, you'll be waiting for them to die with joy especially the kid when he whines about his 'docoooomannary' and the less said about the father character who needs a good slap when he goes into 'military dad', the better.... mode. Scares are non existent. Whoever made and 'acted' in this drivel should never be allowed near a film set again. Moreover whoever wrote this should be exiled from the industry.

Simply don't waste an hour of your life on this nonsense....you will regret it. This is a hideous mess from start to finish.
