Could be worse
6 April 2018 | by rosedestlerSee all my reviews

While I personally think the acting is good (other reviewers disagree but opinions differ) I think this film was let down a little by the screenplay. The scenes of Mary's descent into madness are overlong. If they had been shorter it would have been better, in reality it's what makes the film a little tedious, you end up just sitting there waiting for that part of the film to be over. It seems a little bit of a random horror film but there was a sequel planned, references to the planned sequel (which I believed has been shelved indefinitely) are in the film and i think the sequel would have probably been helpful in tying up loose ends. All in all this is not the best low-budget film I've ever seen but it is far from the worst! Worth a look if you interested (maybe hit fast forward when the madness scenes start to drag) you may enjoy it, you may not. I personally, think it's passable.
