This movie should really get a minus
30 April 2017 | by paulgraham-96207See all my reviews

Firstly let me start by saying how shocked I was when I looked up this movie on IMDb, and found out that it had won some awards!! This movie is horrendous shockingly bad everything from the acting to the sets, Dean Cain should be ashamed to be associated with this terrible movie. I saw in totally ten minutes of this movie and that was enough, the camera work is shambolic worse than amateurish. The bit when the girl Summer sneaks in the church at night, is possibly the worse set in the history of movies, it looks more like a Ikea store at night that a church.

AVOID THIS MOVIE AT ALL COSTS!!

If someone bought you this movie, lose contact with them regardless of the relation this movie is BAD!!!!!
