Pretty painful

Rating:


So basically this movie is a mix between the film "Are you scared" and
an old MTV show called "Fear", and lets just say that mix doesn't work
very well in this case.

The film is insanely slow, things really don't pick up until about an
hour in, and even then its nothing special. The first hour is basically
just a bunch of shots of the annoying main characters walking through
dark hallways while they talk about how scared they are.

The gore is basically non existent so even the gore hounds won't find
something to like in this one. Honestly this could have been a PG-13
horror film, not sure why it was given an R rating.

I do regret watching this flick because all in all it was a pretty big
waste. The ending was very dumb and there wasn't really anything to
take away from in this disaster. I gave it a 2 simply based on the fact
that I do enjoy Reality show/Horror idea. 2/10 Skip it.
