Ted's review

Was concerned when I read Ted's review ** below, until I got to the "inherent scariness of Blair Witch" comment, where I switched off. So I went and saw it anyway. You can't compare this with Blair Witch, OK it's hand held and overhyped with guerilla marketing but at least it's not drivel (sorry pointless, boring, badly-acted, supposedly-scary, drivel). It's not 5 stars - let's face it an 84 minute action film with almost no plot (and no GOOD plot) can't get 5 stars. It's an ACTION movie - and a bloody good one. Perhaps if you want to be intellectually challenged by a film you shouldn't be choosing a film where the poster has a headless Statue of Liberty???
