Seriously? What was this...?
Well, first of all I had not even heard even the slightest about the movie titled "Anne" prior to stumbling upon it by sheer random dumb luck. I looked at the cover and deemed it a horror movie. I didn't even read the synopsis for the movie, which I might should have done in retrospect.
In defense of the movie, then I will say that the movie's cover/poster definitely is interesting and serves as a lure quite well, because I was hooked and wanted to check out the movie.
This movie might be labeled "horror", but wow, it was anything but horror. Well, at least the mindboggling 25 minutes of the ordeal that I managed to sit through before I gave up out of sheer boredom. The movie felt like a random conjured series of events handed to director and writer Joseph Mazzaferro and then he had to put something together.
And that he did, but it was just not something that impressed me, captivated me, entertained me or made me want to stick around to finish the movie. I didn't care an ounce about the storyline, nor about the main character. It was definitely not the fault of actress Gail Yost, but she seriously had been given nothing in terms of a proper storyline, script or a character to work with.
The music in the movie was abysmal, and it was so ill-suited for a movie of this kind. It was really misplaced and out of tune with whatever mood that the director was trying to establish with this project.
I gave up on the movie 25 minutes in, and I can honestly say that I am never returning to watch the rest of the movie, because I couldn't care any less about the movie and everything in it. So if you like horror movies, then you are far better off with anything else aside from "Anne".
