Complete and utter garbage! Do not waste your time. Horrible acting, horrible story just plain s**t. If your into watching 2 hours of some loud obnoxious guy screaming about how to eat food in a low budget poorly shot bore fest, This is your movie. Not even horror.

The movie has stuck with me for years. I did not remember the plot until the rewatch, but I remembered that it is stylistically superior to most every other movie. Great addition to the Shudder family.
