Audience Reviews for Nailbiter

This is by far one of the worst films I've seen, definitely the worst film this year. There were some good intentions but didn't execute well. Actors were terrible, definitely made the film "Scary" to watch, plot was non-existent, special effect was crap, you really can't see anything in the dark can you. The limited budget forbade the viewers to see the monster as a full. Everyone was reading lines, the lighting was used so badly it hurts my eyes. The setting didn't make any sense, why would someone put a bunch of weapons in a cellar?? The deaths were unsympathetic, the ending was random, I didn't bit my nails at all, checked my watch more than 30 times for sure. Trust me, this is a massive time waster, please don't bother getting this film.

A film with a simple yet effective premise, Nailbiter follows a family who takes shelter in a seemingly abandoned farmhouse's storm shelter during a tornado. They then begin to experience true horror as bizarre creatures begin to assail them. Brutal, yet somewhat predictable, Nailbiter manages to be a thoroughly engaging horror film despite not quite rising to the heights it could have.
