Not bad once you get into it.
10 December 2006 | by diamond_martiniSee all my reviews

OK, well to start off with, ya the movie had a lot of problems.

The lighting was almost embarrassing, the story was a little strange and somewhat hard to follow.

However, I still liked it.

To truly understand this movie, you have to have seen it a few times because every time you watch it you'll see something that you missed the last time. Once you understand everything that's going on, it's actually a very interesting movie. It's story is based around the fact that every decision you make will impact you in a huge way.

Not to mention the great acting! Reynolds and Forsythe were fantastic in this film.

To sum up. The acting was good, the story was charmingly creepy and damn funny.
