      Audience Member You can it was low budget. A lot of the acting is great, but just needed some polish. Could see where it was heading, and thought it could have been a decent movie with more money behind it. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/13/23 Full Review Audience Member So bad. Like wow. I knew it was going to be dumb going into it but I didn't expect it could be THIS bad. Dave Franco was kinda funny at times so I guess I will give it 1 star instead of a half. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 02/05/23 Full Review Audience Member For a movie called "the shortcut" it sure went on forever, and led to nowhere. I'm not sure what category this movie is, but horror or thriller it is not. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 01/24/23 Full Review Audience Member Highly recommend, genuine thrills and suspense, well filmed, good acting, as well done as 'Halloween' Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/02/23 Full Review william s They went in a different direction and actually tried to build a story.Key word here is tried. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member It's one of the weirdest movies I've ever seen with a weird story Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/25/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      Jeffrey M. Anderson Combustible Celluloid You won't be scared silly, but for a horror movie to take such a low-key approach, focusing on characters and situations seems like a radical departure. Oct 4, 2009 Full Review Read all reviews
