User Reviews: * 1/2 out of ****

The film is pretty much just another Friday the 13th ripoff. The acting, directing, and effects all could use a lot of improvement. It’s never boring, but it isn’t scary or interesting. The film never really moves. I wasn’t particularly interested in any of the characters problems and i didn’t really care about what was happening. It just didn’t thrill me. Of course i wasn’t expecting it to however. It seemed like a cheap kind of movie before i watched it. The ending, however, is a good jolt. It’s a pretty cool twist that definitely makers the film a lot more memorable. It’s kind of like a BEYOND THE VALLEY OF THE DOLLS sort of ending, only a little more unexpected and nowhere near as disturbing. It adds a nice dose of originality to an otherwise cheap outing.
