Grimmd
21 April 2017 | by robbinn-354-691035See all my reviews

This was a agony. Not sure were to start. I guess that it all starts with the director. He gets 0 stars. The 1 stars goes to the actors undergoing this ordeal.

The acting is as good as the director allows it to be I guess. So it sucks. The actors try to do there best but there is not to much to work with. They become flat and awkward.

The story starts OK, but has a smell of a copy cat of a American TV show. Then it becomes a cliché.

The storyline is full of holes and doesn't hold.

This is a plot with a good possibility with a bad execution.
