Pure Garbage


Don't bother with this crap. It looks like the flick could have been decent, but in the end it shows its horrible colors and really illustrates how poor independent filmmaking can be.

The problem is the trashy main character Beth, there is nothing to like or respect about that character. I know we're supposed to sympathize with the protagonist, but I was wanting her to be killed off.

This guys doesn't seem to have seen the flick. I am not sure how he defined "trashy". I thoroughly enjoyed this movie. This is a must watch for horror fans.

I didn't mean trashy in a promiscuous sense, but more of an offensive personality. Probably the wrong word to use. She was a coward through and through so there wasn't anything to respect or redeeming about her.

The juxtaposition between the reality of her imprisonment and her retreating into her own mind was also poorly executed. Since she really didn't look much different 16 years into the future in her fantasy world the time time jumps between her cowardice and reality were more aggravating than anything else.

This movie also failed as a horror flick on so many levels so real lovers of horror should avoid this like the plague. Concepts similar to this have been done before and so much better.

What drugs are you on? This movie was very good and that’s coming from a real lover of horror who has seen over 2000 horror movies.

Son, I'm 41 and have been watching horror since the age of 4. I'm right up there with you in the number of horror movies I have seen. Some indie horror titles such as "The Hills Run Red" or the French made "Frontiers" and "As Above So Below" genuinely surprised me being better than initial expectations while others in the vein of "Flesh for the Beast" or "Bleed" were so bad they dumbfounded me. I have dove into the works of Dario Argento in my quest to broaden my horizons.

I have different taste than you and I'm very critical of horror because being a real fanatic I expect so much more. I will say this movie had a lot of promising elements, but I felt the acting was stilted enough to be unconvincing. It was the execution where this film fell apart along the way in its presentation, particularly the time jumps between reality and the fantasy of her safe haven in her own mind. When I figured out what was really happening midway through I was severely disappointed and thus the reveal lacked conviction and impact.

This is one Indie title which didn't work for me. I'm glad you liked it, I truly am, and that's the beauty in difference of opinion. However, I just feel someone whom has seen a lot of horror, more than some arbitrary claim, should have seen major plot points miles away before they were revealed. Also, said person should realize this very same premise has been done many times before and in a much better fashion. I'm just saying.

Haha you have poor taste in movies then. This film was classic. Not for the weak minded who love Christmas movies
