Jerky TurkeyBy Tarantulaboy (2 reviews) , 06 Apr 2012
[Highly rated reviewer]I would have enjoyed the film had it not been for the constant camera movement which at times was all over the place. It got to be quite irritating and annoying to the point that halfway through I totally lost interest and found it difficult to concentrate on the remainder of the movie.

Nice plot, fantastic actors, poor directionBy Aethalides (2 reviews) , 20 Oct 2012As far as storytelling goes, this is a good movie.
The plot unfolds slowely, the actor's performance is brilliant, and yet every single frame of the movie screams 'B-Movie'.
It seemed to me that a lot of the time we were just looking at fillers.
I am not a director and I do appreciate all the time money and effort that goes into movie making, but this one could have been so much better.
If I could change but one thing in this movie I would tell the story from the point of view of the murderer rather than the victim.

A horrible way to spend 2 hoursBy a customer , 09 Sep 2012
THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS Show review anywayHideRubbish! The premise of the film is good. Unfortunately the storyline, dialogue and characters are nonexistent. The blurry camera effects at the start and end of every scene don't work, they just gave me a headache as I tried to struggle whether the scene was the past or present and the twist at the end is laughable.
Camera on a bungee cord.By Draney (7 reviews) from Swansea , 29 Aug 2012A lot of other reviewers have mentioned the camera movement in this film, so I won't mention that, my problem with the film stems from the director. He seems to think he's making and arty drama, which I have no problem with, but in order for something like that to work you need at least some interesting characters. There is a good idea and a good film in here somewhere but the script needed more work. It comes together better near the end but the previous 80 minutes are a dull affair really.
A DISTURBING REFLECTION ON SOCIETY'S "WANTS"By TeenG (2 reviews) , 18 Aug 2012Most reviews of this film are fairly repetitive (not without justification) in that they mention the dreadful camera work and some mention the irritating use of showing glowing balls for some totally obscure and unknown reason, blurry images and let's not forget a blank screen at times for our entertainment, which was probably a blessing.
I must admit that, although being an avid 'horror' fan, I'm becoming disturbed lately at the increasing use of very realistic, graphic and gratuitous use of gut churning violence and horrific images on screen. Has using our imagination become a thing of the past? Are 'snuff' movies really so far fetched or is this what 'people' clamour after? Yuk - at least with zombie movies I can still have a bit of a laugh. This film was way too near the knuckle - had to turn it off, and did persevere with it until it just got a bit too much. Surely a line must be drawn somewhere, or is nothing sacred anymore??
Visual Waterboarding!By DogBite (21 reviews) from Leeds , 07 Aug 2012

A Horrible Way To Spend The Evening
A Horrible Way To Make A Movie ..
The lead female character plays melancholy straight out of a
Greek tragedy, my fervent hope is that shed not got away from the serial killing boyfriend in the first place to torture us with this performance.
The director seems to have a fixation with soft focus editing; it got so bad I was worried about my vision. In fact that was scarier than the movie. This film is visual waterboarding; the director should be standing trial in The Hague.
