An hour of my life I'll never get back.
20 August 2015 | by erika_pattisonSee all my reviews

By far the worst horror I've ever seen. I put this on as back ground noise while I tidied the house, needless to say my house is spotless because this film is unable to hold your attention more than five minutes. Wooden, uncomfortable acting with a slow boring some what awkward storyline plus filming which looks like it's been filmed by some kind of gcse drama class equals a slightly irritating hurry up and get to the good bit style film which I would not recommend to anyone. I really don't understand how films like this get made nowadays. It was like watching an extended episode of the joys of wall painting. If you like a good horror film this is not for you.
