Review: (#1) The general lack of background is a disappointment, but the splatter-bird motif along with the inset of actors works quite well together.

(#2) The character insets while uncommon are poorly executed. There’s no interest in the background and the shirtless torso won’t likely sell this film.

Trailer Rating: C+

SEE ALL TRAILERS BELOW
Review: This isn’t an unfamiliar premise, cobbled together from dozens of other films, the thing that’s supposed to set it apart is its cast and that only partly works, leaving the audience wondering if it really needs to waste its time with the film.

Oscar Prospects:

None.
