Totally awful!
13 April 2002 | by (Kaarina, Finland) – See all my reviews

First I must admit I saw this one dubbed in English, although I doubt it made any difference. No plot, no character development, no gags, boring acting and soforth.

I do not consider myself a person who would use this phrase lightly, but this one was probably the worst film I ever did see. Unbelievably they actually released this on video in Finland when video was young...

The horror, the horror.
