What a mess of a movie. Thankfully, this trash is so bad it's hilarious with one of the best corny kills in horror. I can't imagine that Kristy Swanson can bear to think about this film without cringing at how incredibly bad she is in it - and she's probably the best actor in it.
I would totally watch this again - if I were with drunk friends.
Why is it so hard to make a movie like this where the third act doesn't completely destroy the interesting second act twist?
You had so much potential, THE GIFT. Jason Bateman was really well cast for what you were going to pull off. And then you wasted it. Enough that I am still annoyed.
I get really angry at movies that get this close to doing something unique/surprising and then pull back into conventional thriller land, like they're some sort of gifted kid who ends up working at 7-11.
