laughable acting low low budget
27 January 2020 | by ferdmalenfantSee all my reviews

Just a couple of words on this trash...the first review is 10/10 I watched the movie and I have to say that the "person(s)" associated with the film who placed this first rating of 10/10 GOOD LUCK! It's a terrible, boring, low budget, badly acted piece of crappolla! What a joke.
