Cringe-worthy acting and dialogue
9 December 2018 | by aldencliffSee all my reviews

For some reason, they tagged this as an Italian film during the Cine Europa. I wanted to admire their attempt to make the movie entirely in English with some splattering of tagalog for effect, but the delivery of the lines were so pedestrian there was no attempt at all to at least use a standard English pronunciation. The dialogue was delivered in a pronounced tagalog accent and because of the struggle to deliver their lines in English the actors failed at a convincing acting. Why didn't they dub over the conversation after getting a good language coach? Mired with poor product placements and a mish-mash of horror clichés, it's a movie that will make you want to drink from the waters of Lethe.
