So, DJ didn’t score this one.  Why?  Because we watched it once before we started this scoring system and we hated it.  So, when I decided to give it another chance, DJ wanted no part of it.  He was the smart one in all this.

This movie makes little to no sense.  It was pointless.  I mean, what was the reasoning here?  Why was that one chick naked all the time?  And I believe that the message was that sometimes it’s better to be abandoned.  What the hell kind of message is that??!!  

Good points: it was creepy.  Also, the effects were pretty good.  But creepy effects can not save a movie by themselves.

My score is 23/100.  Watch it if you want, but don’t blame me when you’re angry after it’s over.

About TaraRomero

I suppose I could list my favorite movies here, but instead I'll give you a strange glimpse into what makes me TaraRomero. 1. When I'm alone I like to sing really loudly to songs I know really well and pretend I'm actually good at it. 2. I am a bonified Hiddlestoner. 3. I have kept a journal for the last 25 years and I still own every one of them. 4. I like ordering travel magazines and picking out trips I'm going to take when I'm rich. 5. I'm currently worrying about my brother. I always worry about my brother. He's younger and it's my job. 6. If I knew I was dying in one hour, I would type a very strange email and then go spend time with my family (including my fur babies). 7. The best non-horror movie I've seen recently is The Giant Mechanical Man. 8. I am obsessed with Bob's Burgers and I watch one episode every night before I go to bed. 9. If I had a son I'd name him Malachai (as in Christian Mythology). If I had a daughter I'd name her Antigone (as in Greek Mythology). 10. My favorite band is and I supposed always will be, Matchbox Twenty. However, the music has become more upbeat lately and I don't like it as much. Just being honest.
