Fraud on the Fraud reviews calling the ratings fraud
30 August 2016 | by msharke-58509See all my reviews

I'm not quite clear as to why there is such negativity about this movie. It's quite original with it's location, international cast, which it actually does have. The sexuality orientation or the black- male character, which you never see in movies let alone horror movies.

The effects and plot of the movie kept me well drawn in from start to finish. The fight scenes were excellent and acting well done for an independent movie, which these types of movies have a certain budget. Without wanting to go to much into the movie, since there are strict concern about posting a review,

Either way; the movie was excellent! and well deserving of the 8.7 stars. Highly recommended!
