Just don't see it. It's truly terrible. And not in a good way.
31 August 2015 | by dalriada35See all my reviews

We picked this film from a good number showing to spend our hard earned cash on at Frighfest in London today. Frighfest is a truly excellent festival full of brilliant horror films, however, this is not one of them. Not by a long chalk. Even the production values which were fairly high and the normally excellent Tony Curran couldn't save this God awful film. The main problems with this film, and the issues were numerous, was the terrible script and the terrible acting of Diana Vickers. I don't often give reviews although I do watch many films. The strength of my feeling means that I am compelled to warn horror fans not to spend either their precious time or their money on this film. Instead, watch The Lesson made for much less money, much better acting and very well executed.
