Painful
7 December 2015 | by jared-126See all my reviews

For some reason my wife and I hired this the other night, and it took all our willpower to get through to the end. I just didn't care. Didn't care about the characters, the story, or the outcome. Lifeless acting, terrible dialogue, and an unnecessarily drawn out story. There are no plot twists, so don't wait for it to improve. The gore is completely unnecessary, although the cringe-worthy splashes of blood to serve to distract you from everything else, albeit briefly.

The score, however, was terrific! Thoroughly enjoyed the music, and thought it was the absolute highlight of the film. So, kudos to the composer.

Summary: buy the soundtrack and do the dishes to it :)
