guideline: 7.5 usually indicates a level of
excellence, about like three and a half stars
from the critics. 6.0 usually indicates lukewarm
watchability, about like two and a half stars
from the critics. The fives are generally not
worthwhile unless they are really your kind of
material, about like two stars from the critics.
Films under five are generally awful even if you
like that kind of film, equivalent to about one
and a half stars from the critics or less,
depending on just how far below five the rating
guideline: A means the movie is so good it
will appeal to you even if you hate the genre. B means the movie is not
good enough to win you over if you hate the
genre, but is good enough to do so if you have an
open mind about this type of film. C means it will only
appeal to genre addicts, and has no crossover
appeal. D means you'll hate it even if you
like the genre. E means that you'll hate it even if
you love the genre. F means that the film is not only
unappealing across-the-board, but technically
inept as well.
Based on this description, this
film is a C. Offbeat, confusing, weird, sexy. A different kind
of movie, to be sure, which will have a strong cult of
supporters, but will be perceived as unresolved gibberish by
most viewers. Stay away unless you like puzzle movies and have a
strong tolerance for the fact that nothing is ever fully
clarified. Tuna says: "First
time director Jeremy Kasten has made a very good movie, but one
that requires way too much thought for horror genre fans, and
has had trouble finding an audience. As for me, it is a film I
will re-watch. Clearly not for everyone, it is a C-."
