I didnt expect this to be good, but damn, this could well be one of the worst horror movies Ive seen all year. It has none of the dread, none of the tension, and none of the bleak feeling we got from the colossal original. And the acting and dialogue?? Holy crap, its friggin awful. So bad in fact I almost thought I was watching it dubbed into English rather than it actually being in English. As the characters speak its stunted, amateurish, and incredibly cheesy. At times (as the horrible melodramatic string music on the soundtrack soars) it felt like I was watching some made for TV Hallmark flick rather than (what should have been) an attempt at a tribute to a genre landmark. Its that bad, and blatantly clear that no one made any real effort at all to produce something memorable here. And while I really disliked the Martyrs remake it was Oscar bait compared to this turd. And the ending? Well what did you expect? Its not there of course. They completely changed it and sanitized things to the point of puke inducing sugary pish. This movie SUCKS. SUCKS. SUCKS. Damn, Im off to cut my own brain out on the stairs to get this abortion out of my mind. Ugh.
This director is now a one hit wonder for me. I loved Kidnapped, disliked Extinction, and HATED this.
