Audience Reviews for 247F

No idea why the temperature has to be 247F to kill them. Acting was not too bad because it was non-existent. Plot was simplistic: A bunch of college kids goes to lakeside vacation, then somehow they got addicted to the Sauna facility there, ultimately trapped inside. One of the girls is claustrophobic, which is not helping at all. The only one not trapped is drunk as hell, Some of the sound effects and cinematography are annoying, e.g. the constant close ups and random medium shots. Echos do not appear inside a sealed room OK, seriously, this film is a disgrace to the survival genre.

Somehow this movie with the simple premise of three young people get locked in a steam room absolutely failed to make a halfway interesting movie. It's incredibly slow, dull, boring, and absolutely apathetic. None of the "victims" are sympathetic, both women are relegated to dumb shrieking, act on impulse nutjobs. The dude is given ALL the exposition to explain the "science" and "logic" behind what they can and cannot do. There's absolutely no tension except when will this movie end? How could the filmmakers have turned in such a poor film? How do you fail to execute an entertaining "locked in a steam room" movie?

Why would you want to go in a heat box ? really no way to turn down the temperature from inside? The acting was pretty good in this, but the story was not that good!
