Eclectic Rating: stars
Excellent idea, slow in the telling. This movie was one of the slowest films I've ever seen, and the slow pace ultimately brings the viewer to a surprise twist ending but by that point you're so glad the movie is over you could care less.
Even with great veteran actors the characters are boring, except the lead girl, she was the only saving grace in the film; the only convincing character. That's my opinion. Not a horrible movie, but certainly not what it was hyped to be in the previews and commercials. It's not what you might expect. Certainly not the chiller that is promised in the advertisements.
