What a humble waste of talents
31 August 2003 | by thonarsSee all my reviews

It's really unbelievable, how Ivan Passer, director, who has proved his talent several times, could shoot so stupid movie and waste talents of the actors, composer as well as the writer of the original story. This film is a true example of how to mess up just ANYTHING that could have been done wrong on a film. Story is being told in a way that even a horror enthusiast kid would not believe any single situation. Actors are playing so poorly, that I was asking thousand times how the hell could any director let these particular actors act so bad. Don't waste even a single minute watching this stupid caricature of a feature film. What a shame for the director!
