The writing is piss-poor, it’s just bad cliche after bad cliche. Besides Lance and Henry for me the acting is horrible. Asthma boy was ridiculous and unrealistic, decides to go down several flights of stairs instead of just chilling the fuck out, my sister has asthma, we know how it works. His problem seems more mental than physical. They may have wanted us to laugh at different parts of this movie but we didn’t, it just seemed like they tried so we took off points. Somehow wanting to live in Miami makes someone a “typical male”, theres that great writing. The credits song induces suicide, apparently someone is laughing now while standing tall and he explains it…at length. No one in this is likable and Kathryn Winnicks character is preachy and Christopher Jacots characters was a buzzkill. Though my sister does have a thing for him…ew lol. We didn’t mind the story but the execution ruined it. No jump scares but we liked the cenobites and some of the kills were cool. we didn’t hate it but we didn’t like it either, we both gave it a 37/100.

1. If I could manage it, I'd love to learn a new language. 2. My favorite piece of clothing is my Philadelphia Eagles tee shirt. 3. The fictional place I'd most like to go to is the Starship Voyager so I could explore space. 4. I once spent exactly 6 hours (no more, no less) working at a Burger King. 5. If making people laugh were a sport, I'd win the gold every time. 6. My favorite drink is Yoo-Hoo. 7. The best non-horror movie I've seen recently is Wonder. I loved the book, too. 8. My favorite bands are the Beach Boys and The Monkees. I've even seen The Monkees in concert. 9. Danny Trejo is my idol. He's overcome so much and he's super nice in person. 10. The most heartwarming thing I've ever seen is this old couple in the doctor's office. They were poking each other playfully and their love just filled the room.
