| Such potential... wasted.
Horror is my favorite genre, but I swear only one out of every hundred films is watchable, and one out of every thousand are good. The rest are evenly split between movies that are so bad you turn them off after five minutes, or movies that are actually on track to be great... then end so terribly it ruins the entire film, and leaves you more angry than anything..

This movie is definitely a prime example of that last horror movie type. Aya Cash puts in a stellar performance... really, just top notch... but it can't save this movie. The first 90% of the film it feels like it's building to something, for sure; has its own tempo, its own style. Kinda goofy, but laced through with just enough seriousness you feel there will be some sort of supernatural twist in the end. (Now that I think about it, it felt like a really long episode of Tales From The Crypt or Tales From The Darkside).

I don't want to spoil the ending, but the finale is such a complete tone shift it feels like it was added by a different director and crew entirely. And the tropes they lean on for the finale aren't entertaining, aren't funny, and are not he kind of scares you've been primed to expect for the hour-and-a-half leading up to it (or you would have expected going into the film). It's just so...bad.

Honestly, if it weren't for Aya Cash's performance, this would have ranked a one or two stars, at best. If the ending had just been more in line with the tone of the movie, it could have been an eight or a nine. But really, don't bother with this one, or if you're too big a fan of Aya Cash at least go into it prepared for an unsatisfying ending.
