Philadelphia Inquirer

By Tirdad Derakhshani
Like other entries of its pulpish ilk, the picture packs lots of violence, a fair bit of gore, and plenty of cheap scares.

Good Acting

By briandutting
Acting was excellent, but movie was bad. Not scary. I tried my best to stay awake. No reason to be rated R. A real sleeper....
