Lame and nearly unwatchable
Tormented by a past tragedy, a woman joins a group of friends on her family's boat only to get stranded in open water and finds herself being forced into disfiguring herself day after day until she uncovers the truth about the trauma to get the situation to stop repeating.
This didn't offer up much for it. One of the main problems here is the fact that there's just not a whole lot of interest in what goes on with her traumatized condition. Despite it being set-up from the start as her having a kind of debilitating condition, nothing about what happens really makes it obvious that she really is and it just comes off as incredibly route and clichéd from the start. The fact that she's become quite flighty and jumpy doesn't really endear itself all that much into inducing fear, and the action of what's happening doesn't really mean anything because it's all so utterly hard to care about the events within. It builds to a mystery that's impossible to care about, takes forever to do so and tries to force these conclusions onto her that it just seems so convoluted and haphazardly done that there's nothing about it that draws any interest to what's going on. The supposed scares are weak and unconvincing and lead to such a wild conclusion that there's overall little appealing there, and with the repetitious nature of it all coming back around again and again it's impossible to generate tension from there, and frankly the only thing that really works here is the suggested brutality of the kills that end her day as what this implies her doing to herself get somewhat creepy at times. Overall, though, there's little about this one worth remembering.
