Low-budget film?
20 February 1999 | by bato-2See all my reviews

I don´t know..... This movie doesn´t seem to have much money involved in it. You can tell that by the obvious recorded voices and the cheap sound effects, not to mention that awkward illumination. But anyway, the plot has nothing else to offer and nobody seems to know about this movie!!!! Well, perhaps the acting could save this movie, perhaps not. Watch it at your own decision.
