bad editing spoils it
11 May 2010 | by trashgangSee all my reviews

ooooooooooh this is one with bad acting. For me only the child gives a good performance. The story is okay but also the editing and sonorisation could have been done much better. Watch the part with barking dog. You see that the dog doesn't bark but you hear him bark. And he bites, but hey, they are pulling the dog away but even that is bad edited. It isn't that bloody or scary. Even the beginning of the episode is sadly acted by another child. He's dying but what the hell, he's choking, no no he's doing the Sint Vitus dance, in fact it's so bad that they explain what is going on. Anyhow, it has been aired as number 4 in the series, just enjoy it as it is....
