User Reviews

Zero Star Rating if I could!
10 January 2019 | by trashley22See all my reviews

Had to write a review after I saw the ones giving it a 10/10 - were they getting paid to write those reviews or what?! The story is practically non existent, we were left asking each other lots of questions about what actually went on at the end. What is the story?! I can deal with low budget, cheap looking movies if there's a story you can get behind, or good acting, but not here. So it looks bad, no story continuity, and the 2 mains (Courtney & Cody) were such bad actors. If I could give it zero stars I would... so I guess the one star I gave it is for using Eastern State Penn in Philly as a shooting location, that place is cool. My husband was excited to see the horror cast line up for this film, that's why he bought it the day it canevout, but even he feels it's a total let down. He agrees on the 1/10 rating but states his 1 star goes for the horror legends cast. Save your time and watch something else.
