What if Tommy Wiseau directed Silence of the Lambs?

YIKES what a stinker!!! I was lured into this dung heap by a shockingly high IMDB score made entirely of sock-puppet accounts made just to review this thing. The acting and writing arw that of high school theater. When I took a screenwriting class they handed us a list of cliches and im pretty sure the makers of "A Dark Foe" used it as a script. The only thing remotely entertaining in this trash fire is the gratuitous gore which has some actually nasty practical work done. Even the scalpings and shootings have goops and gobs of viscera splatting as if this was some Troma or Eli Roth production. Throw in some rape, childhood trauma, sex trafficking and "deconstructive" racist charicatures to the mix to make it "edgy" and "shocking" but "meaningful" and "relevant" (registered trademark) and you got one that young and old should skip.

Waste of a Cast

Horrible casting, but a great cast if that makes sense. Some great actors in horrible roles. Scenes did not flow well.in to one another. Dialogue was horrible.
