Oh my god was this movie bad, and I mean bad. The writers seem to think that using every cliche in Horror movies is equivalent to good storytelling and so you'll see several instances of characters turning around expecting to see someone where no one is there and creepy music falsely leading to what would bea suspenseful scene but again, turns out to be NOTHING. Then again there's the supporting characters, who always seem to doubt the protagonist when bad things happen until it's too late. Then there's the third act reveal, which is so STUPID that several people in the audience burst out laughing for several minutes. This movie had some potential, but squanders it 20 minutes into the film. Bottom line: this is the type of movie you'd go to with several friends and heckle the screen while the characters spout their bad dialogue.

Rating: * of 5
