Real Nightmare
8 February 2017 | by Cynthia SarobSee all my reviews

What you get: nice old mansion, crap story, horrible acting, special effects dating back to the 80s The idea for this movie is not too bad. The synopsis sounded interesting enough to me. It raises expectations the movie can't deliver.

Who casted these guys as actors? This is sometimes so bad that it gets funny. I have seen a lot better in music videos or even TV commercials for breakfast cereals. Who wrote the dialogues? Repetitive and boring. They talk so much about things nobody would ever find interesting.

What actually happens for 40 min is close to nothing. How is that even possible? They could have elaborated on the old mansion, on the story or on the characters. Thos is a whole new dimension of boring.

There was one scene with really outstanding visual effects. You get books flying around. That was so bad. Even adjusting them on a rope and moving the rope with the books would have been more impressive. I haven't seen something like that in ages.

So much potential wasted here. Do yourself a favour, go to the dentist, clean the filter of your vacuum cleaner or check if your vaccinations are up to date. Can think of so many other things I wouldn't like to do rather than having to watch that film again.

I give 1 for story idea and 1 for everybody involved to finish a project like that.
