Plagiarism at its best!By onion (345 reviews) from leeds , 08 Feb 2009
[Highly rated reviewer]Okay, there are a lot of things about this film that arent all that great (a poor mans Jason Statham? Tell me you don't see it!). But there is some really good stuff too.
Having said all that, I wanna be nice anyway because a goodfriend of mine recommended this film to me (hey becks) and I can see why she likes it. I think I do too.
Anyway, yes the first hour seems almost like an amalgamation of Lockstock (complete with dodgy freeze frame narration), Hellraiser twos plot and Silent Hill style looks, and yes, the acting is a little poor (surely us Brits are better than this). But f#ck it! Its a good laugh!
And the final act (or twist!) will really change your mind about the whole film! If only it couldve been more like that all the way through!
But I guess that was the point.
Give it a chance.

Silly nonsenseBy deko (140 reviews) from Newtownabbey , 17 May 2009Not to be taken too seriously.
It was really quite silly for a horror film.
Devils ChairBy a customer from Manchester , 17 May 2009Utter rubbish.
Swearing, and blood.
As for the monster, do not make me laugh, well, sorry, I did all the way through the film.
worth a waitBy jazzyjeff0101 (8 reviews) from London , 15 May 2009yes there is some very bad acting and yes the opening hour of the film is quite painful to watch through - although i was quite surprised to see Izzy from Hollyoaks make an appearance. The narration is at times laughable and just when I was about to give up and switch off, the finale hooks you right back in. I was amazed at how intense and surprised I was at the quality of the conclusion, although maybe that's just because what preceeded it was so bad.
DONT WATCHBy Stevieboy2 (9 reviews) from Oldham , 11 May 2009Oh my god this was terrible. I am a massive horror fan and on paper this looked quite good. I was sadly wrong! its terrible. The plot makes no sense and there isn't enough gore or shocks to make it watchable. The only saving grace is that guy out of the IT crowd being in it. But even he is not enough to save this film. Horror is done by the Americans, except for a few anyway
