I don't usually review - but you need to know how bad this is.
16 February 2017 | by summer_wine7See all my reviews

As the title states - I don't normally go out of my way to review movies on here. However, this movie is so incredibly bad, it barely deserves one star, and you need to know it really isn't worth your time. Not even a little bit - not even if you like cheesy or campy horror. This isn't even amusingly bad. It's just bad.

The acting is an absolute atrocity. The actors' emotions are either completely absent or they are so over the top it makes you cringe. I suppose they only have a horrible script to work with - with holes in the plot, unnatural and illogical dialogue (akin to "did you feed the dog" - "yes there are 12 trees" - THAT illogical). The script not only drowns in clichés, it also simply makes no sense half the time - this is only highlighted by the actors who look like constant deer in headlights. I have seen deeper acting in high school plays.

How this got made, and more than 1 star, is well beyond me.

There is only one thing "horror" about this movie, and it's the quality. Don't waste your time. Everyone who made this movie is also better off with you not having seen it. Let's forget this ever happened, for their sake.
