Did You Know?


The opening Charlie Grimille hanging was a played by ear sequence with the rest of the cast and crew during its initial shots, Directors/writer Lofing pitched to Cluff and the actor Jesse Cross of not informing the rest of the cast and crew of the sudden prop malfunction they had scripted in, leading everybody to believe Cross had actually just hung to death, the genuine screams, horror and frantic rushing of the crowd encapsulated exactly what Lofing had envisioned for the beginning death sequence and maintained the very first few shots as the film's opening.

TWO People Directed This?
18 July 2015 | by iamwillsmithSee all my reviews

Going into this movie and seeing reviews, I expected nothing and was still disappointed.

Everything was wrong with this movie. Poor plot, very slow start, disappointing scares, unlikeable characters (the cameraman may be one of the worst written characters I've seen in a movie), mediocre shots, and poor writing. If you name it, there's probably something wrong with it.

The ending was by far the worst part, with a nonsensical twist that leaves the viewer with more questions than answers.

It was bad, really really bad, and the only redeeming quality was that it ended at a merciful 82 minutes. Don't see it. Just don't.
