Showing promise in high school, a student goes against his mother's wishes to date a girl which everyone sees as a distraction to his basketball career, but when his mother dies and they move in together they suddenly believe his mother has come back back to haunt them for his actions.
This was a pretty excruciating effort. Most of the film's problems stems from the wholly obvious and extremely apparent low-budget nature at the center of this one. The main problem here is the lame conversational style to the dialog where everything simply screams improv, as conversations end up going around in circles or even just rambling on forever about nothing in particular to the point that whatever's being said in these overlong conversations loses all meaning. A lot of this is the improv nature, fumbling over words or just going on endlessly so it takes forever to get something resembling a conversation out, mumbling to themselves or repeating endlessly the need to keep her away from him so often you don't care about their fate. It never treats them as star-crossed lovers who come together due to their feelings for each other, it just comes off as the ravings of a psychotic person pushing their dreams onto someone else and not liking the fact that he's got a girlfriend. The other problem here is the cheapness causes numerous technical problems that interfere with the overall product. It's incredibly distracting to have scenes go on while a low-battery signal from the camera keeps beeping, the light filters for the scene keeping changing between cuts and outdoor scenes get drowned out due to the wind hitting the mic. The scares here are devolved down to coming upon doors being open they were convinced were closed, jumping hysterically to someone that was clearing coming up behind them or reacting to something off-screen which is just weak and lazy, a fact that also applies to the finale which is just plain awful in terms of nearly every definable standard of the genre. With no suspense and no stakes for anything that's going on, this one is an absolutely travesty and ranks as one of the worst movies ever made.
