Journey is a band?
12 July 2013 | by jessegehrigSee all my reviews

First off I'd like to congratulate everyone who has written a review of this movie for IMDb, way to go! Honestly this is a movie better suited to be on in the background, like if you want to vacuum the living room and you want to have the TV on while you do it, Metamorphosis is the perfect movie for you. Perhaps you are a heavy drinker and need the light of TV to drink by, may I recommend this movie? If you have this movie on VHS, did you know it can be used as a cruel bludgeon, or as a paperweight? This movie probably played a role in some drug-money laundering scheme, because there is no way some one would want this movie to happen for artistic reasons, yeah and clearly it didn't make any money in the box offices. Some sort of scam was played on somebody either the financiers of the film or the IRS, but in no way can this be considered a legitimate motion picture.
