Difficult to watch for more that ten minutes
2 November 2013 | by ToltexSee all my reviews

I only managed about 10 mins then had to switch it off, its all flashing imagery, strange symbolism and weird sound effects. IMHO 77 minutes is far too long to endure it all, perhaps it would of been more bearable if it was a short Film. This won't go down well, with your average Horror audience and unless your a film student, critic or well into art house, this probably will annoy the hell out of you with all the sound effects and flashing imagery, and will go straight over the head of most Horror fans. So if you are into horror don't look at its rating and think that you might enjoy this, do yourself a favour, save your money and go and rent something that you will actually enjoy. I give it 1 out of 10 and that's only because i cant give it a zero. When i wrote this its rating was a lot higher, i think about 6.5.
