Don't wait for it.....
21 February 2014 | by malewizardSee all my reviews

Your going to be drawn in by some eerie looking photos at the beginning credits. "Hmmm this might be good",I said to myself...wrong! The entire movie you will wait for something,anything, to make sense or even scare you...Wrong! The writer,producer and director (all the same person) attempts to pull you in with some sort of weird back story and then drag you painfully (trust me its painful waiting for anything in this movie),through the innate written dialog only to find out nothing is scary,chilling,dramatic, or even entertaining.I don't blame most of the actors,but I can't figure out why they would do this after reading the script. Money I guess,cause it can't be fame. The worst aspect of the entire synopsis here is that the title of the movie,has nothing to do with this movie at all.I concur with another review here..DON"T waste your precious time. Don't wait for it..nothing happens.
