This was an unseen Roberta Findlay film that I had on a double feature with another film, and I was pleased to see a lot of grimy NYC from the eta in the backgrounds, which made up a bit for the kinda blah ghost story. I will say that compared to the other 'horror' film on the disc, which turned out to be more of a thriller anyway, I liked this one for actually having supernatural elements.

This movie is obviously low budget, the actors are bad, and it actually looks a little more like it was made 10 years earlier, but the story wasn't all that bad. It's actually kind of scary, and the back story is interesting enough to keep you watching. Not a bad movie, but not really good either.

Movie Part of a 32 pack-cult classic film pack from target, that I am scourging myself through like a good catholic. It was 10 bucks. At 30cents,a bright orange neon colored tasteless gumball could have been far more entertaining than the weird demon assless chapsex scences, with literally no redeeming quality, an competely inchoherent and stupid plot, this is a film that could be lost forever and neither the IFA nor the world would give a flying fuck.

Novacatt and nardi told me about this. Waste of time. I'm going to unleash a few machine gun firing emoticons on them tomorrow.

I read the film description on the back of the DVD set that I obtained this film in and thought it sounded interesting. If you've read my reviews for "Tenemant" and "Prime Evil" then you can imagine my horror when I saw the name Roberta Findlay appear in the opening credits as director. Her name is like an awful omen that you're going into an absolute piece of shit. Roberta may not be as bad as Fred Olen Ray or Uwi Boll but damn is she not a runner up as she has the uncanny ability to turn a gold bare into a log of brown trout.

We open with a young girl who is about strangled to death with a jump rope outside her apartment building and that night she starts seeing ghostly images of deformed old people known as "Lurkers." Fast forward to years later and as a grown women her fiance√ (C) decides to take her to his companies party which just happens to be in the very building she had problems with the Lurkers. Her fianc√ (C)e is a real douche bag by cheating on her behind her back so obviously his other plans for his 'love of his life.'

Typical with Roberta Findlay films, the acting is just God awful and this proves yet again that she can't direct actors to save her soul. The film also still has the wonderful low budget porno production values that Findlay is so great at providing. The script by Ed Kelleher and Harriette Vidal (same guys who blessed us later with the Roberta helmed "Prime Evil") has holes big enough to rival the caves in fifty year old whores that have been road hard and put away wet.

I will give the film a little praise in that Findlay was able to create a somewhat surreal atmosphere once our lead re-enters the haunted apartment building. My favorite sequence has to be when she is waiting outside when out of nowhere a psychopath emerges chasing a girl with a sledge hammer. It generates a response of 'what the fuck was that'. Sadly these surreal sequences are detrimented by a silly, laugh inducing shit score.

The surreal sequences are enough to make this the 'best' Roberta Findlay film I have seen but that's like saying a log of shit with corn is better than a log of shit with peanuts. Even if it's better, it's still shit. The plot overall uninteresting, the acting makes the flow tedious and the plot holes are enough to make one bash their head against the TV. Only watch if you're a masochist, as any film by Findlay is guaranteed to gratify you the pain your craving.
