Just bad!!!!

Wow, this was a pretty dumb movie! For a huge horror lover like myself, this absolutely flopped. Total let down. It's not scary, very boring, cheesy and just poorly done. Characters are extremely unlikable, some of the acting seemed like comedy. The music was silly, just overall a very blah movie!! The original Black Christmas is amazing!!! I only actually watched it recently this year and was amazed at how great it was, very scary too (unfortunately it is not on CommonSense site)! Check that one out instead on IMDB!
