Its good to see what the filmmakers were able to accomplish with such a small budget but the film didn't really get me too involved. A near-miss.
This film carries extremely low production with it's unimpressive video quality, horrible sound, bad and overused music and overdramatic tones. It makes up for some of that with an eventually interesting plot, decent acting and interesting camera work (not quality). It's difficult for the audience to care as the film sluggishly progresses but if you manage to be patient, you're rewarded with some developments that might even spur another viewing.
A slow burning thriller with a clever twist ending... Yet the pacing is so sluggish that it is hard to maintain one's interest. Recommended only for a genuinely surprising end to the mystery, but the ride leading up to it is indeed a slow one.
Pretty fricking bad to say the least. I highly recommend not watching it.
Bored to tears, terrible camera work, the actors are difficult to understand, and they're terrible when they can be understood.
Aimless, cold and unappealing, poorly developed characters. It jumps around and you have no idea what is real, whether it is in the past, present or future, nor do you care. On the plus side, Anthony Biggs is appealing and there is some inventive cinematography. But overall it's crappy
