The worst movie of all time
6 November 2013 | by Porta PanSee all my reviews

I have never written a review on IMDb before. This movie was so awful, so pointless and utterly devoid of artist merit that I felt compelled to write one. I'm a huge fan of experimental, avant- garde art-house films, but this is like something that a class of 6th graders put together. In addition to the utter absence of a plot, characters, narrative structure or even a point, the sound design is so awful that it's literally unbearable. Someone needs to explain to the "Director" that loud screeching noises and unintelligible distorted voices are not, in themselves, even remotely scary or interesting. I cannot emphasize enough how bad this movie is. I've seen a lot of bad movies, and usually there is at least SOMETHING to redeem them; this movie misses even that low bar. Avoid at all costs.
