The reason this has a low score from votes is because people just don't understand it's A COMEDY not a horror from the moment i put the DVD in and right till the end i was laughing so much i thought i was going to collapse this movie may not have the best acting and it may be a bit low budget but man is it funny also it is cut up into 20 different episodes as they were originally made for your mobile phone another great thing is when they make there wish on the phone it always makes you wonder what is going to happen to them

so give it a try if you are looking for something funny but steer clear if you want a horror movie because this may not be for you.
