"Is that a gun in your hand or are you just glad to see me?" Seriously?! Dialogue like this makes any solid ground the actors might have to stand on disappear. Along with the poorly sewn together scenes this movie comes off as a run through rehearsal in need of a lot of work. Because we spend much of the time having the characters "tell" us or ask other characters what they are supposed to be doing, thinking and feeling the dialog isn't so much a chance for the actors to act as it is for them to "pretend" their characters. As Al Pacino once said 'don't lie to the camera it will always see it' and because the actors are never really allowed to act they end up having to fake what the dialog and the director can't seem to create - a plausible tale. This might have been a really good story but in the end this piece is a bit too "tacky" to "easy" for any of us to really enjoy. I give the acting two stars. Underneath the wreckage of what the director has done there could be a rather spooky and interesting piece of work. But not even the actors can make this film believable. FAIL.
