Well, with such a title, the movie was as to be expected...
4 December 2018 | by paul_haakonsenSee all my reviews

Well, initially I was a bit hesitant about spending time to sit down and watch this movie, despite it being a horror movie and all. Why is that? Well, solely because of the title of the movie. I mean, "Selfie From Hell", come on...

But I decided to give the movie the benefit of the doubt and actually sat down to watch it. Right. Well, I will say that there were some aspects to the movie that proved interesting enough, although they weren't fully utilized. Most of the movie was horribly mundane and just downright boring. The storyline also suffered horribly from being generic and predictable to the point where even a blind and deaf person would predict it well ahead of it happening.

The concept of the movie was interesting enough, just a shame that it was so inadequately brought to fruition on the screen. Whether this was because of the director, or because of a poorly written script, I can only guess. Though I assume it would be the latter.

Some of the acting performances in the movie were adequate, although you should take into consideration that there is about 5 people or so in the entire movie. So there was a lot of pressure riding on these acting talents, and I can't really claim that they managed to do so overly great.

The special effects in the movie were bland and far in between. As for the scares and spooky moments, nope, none of those. Mostly because you saw them coming a mile away, so no scare effects there.

All in all, then "Selfie From Hell" is not really one that I would recommend that you spend your time, money or effort on. Some of us suffer through movies such as this so the rest of you don't have to...
