Right, well I watched this movie and it bore the title "The Faith of Anna Waters", but apparently it is really known as "The Offering"? Or so it would seem.
Well, regardless of the title, then this movie was rubbish. Pure and simple. It was uneventful, it was boring and it just lacked appeal and it was frightfully devoid of anything even remotely scary.
It was as it director and writer Kelvin Tong was following a dummy's guidebook of how-to-make-a-horror-movie. But he took it one step further, because everything that was supposed to be scary in the movie just turned out to be cheesy, campy and downright stupid.
I endured a horribly long hour of watching "The Offering", then I just had my share of stupidity on the screen. And I got up and turned it off, never to return to finish the rest of the movie. Why? Well, because the movie was so mundane, so generic, so pointless that it would be a waste of time and effort to return to watch the rest of it. It was a wonder in itself that I managed to sit through a whole hour of this ordeal. But I was hoping that director Kelvin Tong would swing a magical wand and make it all miraculously more interesting.
That just never happened.
The storyline told in "The Offering" was simplistic and easy to follow. Actually, it was so simplistic that it was sort of an insult to the audience, because we were served everything hand and foot, and it was presented in a manner so you didn't have to use your brain in any way. You just sat there, being spoon-fed the contents of the movie. A vile stew of generic storytelling made unwatchable.
The acting in the movie was fairly adequate, although the actors and actresses were indeed fighting a losing uphill battle against an atrocious storyline, a dreadfully boring script, and it didn't help that they were given shallow and pointless characters to portray on the screen and attempt to make interesting for the audience.
If you enjoy horror movies, you need to take heed and do yourself a favor and stay well clear of "The Offering".
