Boring, dull and slow-paced...
20 April 2014 | by paul_haakonsenSee all my reviews

"Rabid Love" took forever to go nowhere, and in between all that time, the movie never really picked up pace and stepped out of the boring, dull pace that it progressed in.

The story is about a group of people who go to a remote cabin in the forest, where there is a killer in the forest. But something else is also brewing in the idyllic forest...

I must admit that it was amazingly difficult to keep focus on the screen, because so very, very little happened in the movie, that it was a struggle to keep watching the screen. And I caved in and gave up, not even making it to the end of the movie.

There is something very low budget about the movie, but when that is said, then I will also say that there was a good production value to the movie - despite the slow, dull storyline.

As for the acting, well it was alright, though nothing groundbreaking or award-winning here.

All in all, then there was nothing to keep "Rabid Love" afloat, and this is definitely a movie that I will not be giving a second chance to knock me off my feet.
