I... can't believe what I just watched. This movie is the next level of bad.
Whoever wrote this must be mentally ill. This can only be the work of lunatics.
It's so cheesy and pretentious, all the while trying to do a tonal juggling act that it's failing at badly.
I'm pretty hyped to make my review of it. This movie is amazing in how many ways it just doesn't work.
I'm not one to overuse the word pretentious but, holy s**t this movie is high off it's own fumes. The writers must have thought they were making some sort of masterpiece.
Either see it for yourself or watch my next review. Written word cannot do justice to that which must be seen to be believed.

There will be no rating out of ten. I don't know how to score a movie that I got so much ironic enjoyment out of.
At first the pretense wears on you as the movie chugs at a snail's pace, but somewhere past the half way mark it loses its goddamn mind and turns into a spectacular s**tshow.
I've never seen so many bad choices in one script in my entire life.

In the movie a woman named Susan suspects her neighbor, the police commissioner, of abusing his daughter Cristina.

There's a bit where she looks out the window and sees that he is, in fact, in the process of beating her. She runs to get her phone (Which is clearly a smart phone) and calls the commissioner to distract him.

The thing that bugs me about this scene is why she doesn't use her phone to record him in the act. Would the evidence be inadmissible? In this situation she would be in her own house recording him from a window in his. I don't really know the legality of this and I'm having trouble finding it online.

Sorry if this is a stupid question but I'm not exactly well versed in law.

I know in the UK if you have recorded someone on a phone for example, it in inadmissible if the person isn't warned they are being recorded.

okay, yup, that's true here too. and any video of any kind has to have signed permission to be used anywhere. alot of people on youtube break that law and get away with it, but it won't work in court.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
