Typical Clichéd Cult Horror.

This is a typical run-of-the-mill Cult Horror/Slasher/Thriller with Strong bloody violence, language & some sex references & revealing clothing. It isn't engaging enough.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much swearing
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking

Amazing Horror Movie

(Read in Southern Belle accent) Totally appropriate for all da little children. Some people died brutally, but that's ok. I mean what horror movie doesn't have death. You knew what you were gettin' into when you bought a horror movie, ya stupid ding dong. Anyways, I believe its important that children understand the concept of death. And after this movie my children certainly do!

This title has:

Great messages
Too much violence
Too much sex
Too much swearing
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking
