      Audience Member Acting is terrible the dog has more talent than most of the actors. Of course the actors are governed by the script and the director so I can't blame the actors completely. If you want to watch a better movie with the same premise the Summer of Sam would be a far better choice. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 01/17/23 Full Review Audience Member Second only to German director Uwe Boll, Ulli Lommel is truly one of the worst directors of the 21st century. All of his movies claim to be based on true stories but ultimately they're all crap. Somehow he has managed to tie Satanism into the cases of almost every major serial killer in history. Not only is the entire cast completely mediocre and quite honestly terrible at their job, but the film also has dirt cheap cinematography, ridiculous writing and direction that's so bad it makes Ed Wood (said to be the worst director in the history of film) turn in his grave. Something directors like Boll and Lommel should learn is that not every director who chooses to get into the "shock" genre can be Sam Peckinpah (1971 Straw Dogs, The Wild Bunch). Keep trying. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 01/22/23 Full Review Audience Member Film quality, cinematography, acting, directing all GOD AWFUL. I thought I was buying Spike Lee's "Summer of Sam" for $2...a lesson for us all in looking twice.. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 01/23/23 Full Review Audience Member Should have been called "how a serial killer in the area affected my sex life". If you like a bit of porn and stereotypical characters then you should enjoy it. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 01/18/23 Full Review Audience Member I went to school with Yogi Joshi, so I'm supporting this movie even though I tried to watch it and it wasn't reallly my type of flick. Please try to catch it if you have time. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 02/23/23 Full Review Audience Member I turned it off within the first ten minutes. The film quality and direction were just that horrendous. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Read all reviews
