I am a HUGE fan of Brian Yuzna who has written and directed many fantastic horror movies, however, the fact that he only produced this one and had nothing to do with the writing or directing really shows! (and not in a good way!) Don't get me wrong, towards the end you have what becomes quite a good 15 minutes of what could have evolved into a good horror movie, but the entire beginning was so slow to get started that much of the time was wasted before anything exciting actually happened! (you'll see what I mean!) Also, the ending tried to go out on a cliffhanger, but didn't really quite achieve the suspense that the writer had intended. but instead, it just felt unfinished, and a bit of a cop out really! However, I will point out that I watched the American cinema version, and the people who watched the International Version wrote some really good reviews about this movie, so it is entirely possible that a lot was cut out on the version I saw! On the other hand though, they really must have cut out a lot for that to make this a good movie, so more than likely, it's just a matter of different tastes! Don't get me wrong though, it wasn't TOTALLY awful! For the 15 minutes of good story that it had, it did start to get good! So by all means watch this movie to make your own opinion! And my advice to anyone who sees it is simply not to expect too much, and certainly if you've been following Brian Yuzna's work before watching this, just don't expect it to be as jam packed full of great exhilarating ideas from start to finish like the majority of his other films! If you keep your expectations low to begin with, you might find yourself enjoying it for what it is! I'll let you decide!
