A lot of hard work for a lot of nothing
11 June 2014 | by JoeyBombstyleSee all my reviews

The fact that so much time and effort was put into putting together this guerrilla film does show in it visual return and the for the novelty factor it's totally worth dredging through once and it should stand as a resume for anybody on the production staff (and a couple of the actors) as a wonderful accomplishment, but for the writer, director and majority of the the cast all I can say is YICK! I'm sorry to say I think a lot of hipper then though people are trumpeting the wonderfulness of this movie more on it's "Sticking it to the Mouse" in it's having been made then on it's actual merit. I would have loved to see a movie that subversively used the "Disney World" as a back drop for darkness but this halfhearted Shining rip off and/or remake is by far not it. If not for some of the wonderful production sense you are watching a student film that may have received a C+. If I were Disney I would not bother suing either I would let this movie make the rounds and even help promote it because they can't do anything to the movie that it does not already do to itself.
