It's never a good idea to tell a story poorly.
24 July 2010 | by true9999See all my reviews

My review will be short. The low ratings of this movie have nothing to do with homophobia. In fact, had the characters been heterosexual it still would not cure what ails this movie.

The issue with this movie is the narrative. It is ostensibly three different shorts held together by a plot based on an urban legend.

As another review mentions, the movie starts really slow, you have to stick with it. It then transitions into the 2nd act which is quite interesting in part because the actors , well, they can act and hold the viewers attention.

Unfortunately, the 2nd act ends in a disjointed an unsatisfying way and leads into the final act that also features some descent acting but poor storytelling.

This movie could have been great. Several times I felt that this movie could become at least a cult classic but the director blew it.

Don't be fooled. This movie isn't too high-brow,far from it. There is one, and only one reason to watch and that is to see how badly the opportunity to make a very good movie was squandered.
