FillerFest: 15 minutes' worth of movie crammed into 84 minutes
15 April 2020 | by cobbler88See all my reviews

The only real positive thing I can point out about this film is that at least it's over before you hit the 90-minute mark. The boilerplate stuff for this genre (character intro, trip to the location, irrelevant grab-assing) that other films move on from at about the 20- to 25-minute mark extend through about 45-50 minutes. Seriously, you really don't have anything that resembles a functioning story up to and including that point.. By the time the story actually seems to be advancing a little at about the 60- to 65-minute mark, through the ridiculous ending, you just really don't care anymore. You're certainly not invested in any of the characters so you're not concerned with what becomes of them, which pretty much eliminates any suspense. I end up watching a lot of bad horror because I'm looking for a few gems. I don't expect them to be masterpieces. Just give me a decent twist or competent performances. Maybe a fresh take on an old story. I can honestly say that I can't remember a worse horror film that didn't include heavy doses of shooting day for night.
