I wasn’t that keen on the trailer, it didn’t look that interesting but I thought I’d give it a go but now I wished I hadn’t. I’m a huge fan of horror films but when I watch boring ones like this it really puts me off them. The story just wasn’t strong enough. Not much really happened and I wasn’t scared once. Nor did I jump at any point in the film.

I like Sarah Wayne Callies, she’s in a lot of TV shows and I first saw her in Prison Break, I feel like she always plays the same character though. Her character in this reminded me a lot of her character in The Walking Dead. I want to see her in a completely different role. As for the rest of the cast, I don’t really know them.

There’s just no anticipation, no mystery, nothing really. The film was very flat and I wouldn’t recomend it. It’s films like this that give the horror genre a bad name. I think the ending was the best part because it ended on a cliffhanger.

Rating: 3/10.
