Boring lazy shlock fest

This laughably stupid movie reaches its peak when the LOL orchestral rendition of 'I've got 5 on it' plays.

Unwatchable, Unbelievable, and Unimpressive

Hated this movie from the moment it started. Absolutely confused plot line that evidently even the writers didn't understand. Not scary in the least. One of the voices is so hard to listen to that it is like nails on a chalkboard and I had to plug my ears (literally). I walked out. There was not one redeeming feature for me in this flick. Stay far away--though if you liked GET OUT, this is likely your style. That said, I was able to get through GET OUT; this one I could never have finished. Barf.

This title has:

Too much violence
