Plot? What plot? This was a really bad movie to watch!!!
13 January 2007 | by ireallyhatebsSee all my reviews

The plot really wasn't even much of one and I thought it meandered all over the place like a drunk leaving a bar. In the end, I felt that the director (if he can really call himself one) left far too many loose threads than should be allowed.

The premise of the movie didn't make much sense, either. The way it started off was pretty lame. Following 'Telal' from his 'escape,' if you can call it that, made no sense. Having Selena conveniently explain stuff didn't make it any easier to swallow, either. The superstitious mumbo jumbo didn't make the movie any more interesting, it just provided more of a convenient vehicle to drag it out.

Overall, a really bad movie. I think it lowered my IQ several points! I wouldn't recommend it to anybody.

May Telal be a curse upon this horrid movie!
