I have been on a horror movie binge for about 4 months now.. and so I've watched close to 100 horror films thanks to Netflix and Amazon Prime, and so this one came up next- I don't seek out certain films, I literally just click "next" and keep watching, and for the most part they are at LEAST entertaining. This movie came up in my Amazon Prime cue tonight and so I watched it.. I *thought* it was about an hour and a half in because it was PAINFULLY slow, but I paused it and it was barely 45 minutes.
This movie creeps along, not at not a scary, thrilling pace- but at a slow.. horrible, non-informative, HORRIBLE acting, unbelievable plot and even worse script, pace.
I found myself pausing it to go do other things because the acting on Eric Robert's parts were so painful to watch.. it was like he was reading his lines from a huge cue card or something. Slow, non-caring lines. Delivered almost out of tune with the rest of the cast. The script is terrible, yes, but good actors should be able to make it work and he looks like he just gave up, drank a beer (or 10) and waltzed in the set and read his lines less then half-heartedly.
Deb Twiss showed *some* promise with the crap-plot..but then just let it go go go as the movie fell apart so did her acting. Literally just screaming words into the air with no actual tears, sobbing and something you'd see in a parody movie. I kept burying my face in my hands when her parts came up because it was so hard to watch and it gave me second hand embarrassment.
I am not being harsh.. I have watched about a hundred horror films since October and this is the first one that made me sign-up for IMDb and actually write a review because it was THAT bad I had to get it out.
The script, the plot, the acting AND the pace is horrible. To top it all off the editing was 100% off. Non-cohesive and by the time they start explaining anything the movie is over.. the only redeeming quality about this entire movie was the guinea pig.
The 1 star goes to Smudgey.
