Slowest film ever!
Verified purchase
I have studied the Bender family in detail this story uses some of the same names and occasional character traits but the similarity ends there. Every 'actor' (they were terrible) spoke ridiculously slowly as if they were all suffering from serious developmental delays...seriously this 'film' could have been half and hour long but the slow speech made it last for an hour and a half of the most wasted moments of my life. Disappointing doesn't cover it. This is not for those interested in the Bender clan...so much wasted potential for an amazing film ruined here I am afraid absolutely awful and hardly even believable how much of the story is changed almost to make it less interesting. Weird and downright boring.

This supposed ever so gruesome movie is no more gruesome than getting a paper cut on your finger !!
There is NO spoiler moments of any sort so you will be grateful to use the money for something with a better use of your time,like maybe buying a pack of grass seed and throwing some water on them to see how long it takes to germinate!!
Don't bother reading the notes for what the movie is about because I think they've been mixed up with another movie's description.

Keep an eye out for JC Guest. Avoid anything he has had a hand in - like the plague!

I do not think the £4.99 I paid for this film was worth it. It was boring and I did not enjoy it one bit.
