A train-wreck of a movie! I don't even know where to begin. One-dimensional characters run amok, a manipulative storyline that tries to be bold but utterly fails, and an extremely slow pacing are some of the few characteristics of this disaster. There wasn't a single second of the film when I believed that characters' motivations and ways of thinking. On the other hand, maybe this picture is too planned, too calculated to the point where it ended up as a complete mess due to its unmanageable gravity. I wish the filmmakers made the story as simple as possible and have gone to the slasher direction. With its bumbling characters and supposed shockers, one can say that it tried to be the next "The Silence of the Lambs" which serves as a character study of a serial killer. Avoid this one if you can. I'd rather gouge my eyes out than to watch this movie again.
