Worst movie ever?..quite possibly
10 September 2010 | by jorgito2001See all my reviews

I know the term "worst movie ever" is used loosely around IMDb (some even use it to describe 'Avatar'), but as an avid horror movie fan, I think I might have found my new "worst movie ever".

5 friends go into an abandoned asylum/hospital around Halloween with cameras in tow a la Blair Witch, they walk around the place through 98% of the movie...an OVERLY LONG 1 hr 47 minutes of NOTHING going on....I mean NOTHING...just people with cameras walking around, to the same "spooky" piano music looped over & over & over & over (& over). The intercut police station scenes?! What a riot! Does anyone pick up the phones in that place?? The ringing phones actually drown out the detective's dialog...I'm NOT kidding. The dialog is also outstanding, such as "Its my job, I'm a detective, I detect"..no, I don't think it was MEANT to be camp, a failed attempt at humor...probably.

If I had one pro to mention, its the abandoned location, but a location alone cannot save a crappy movie! I'd recommend to stay far, FAAAR away! Its more entertaining to watch paint dry! Nigel Hartwell's filmmaking career should END for making such a HORRIBLY BORING film!
