Worst film I've ever seen
Verified purchase
The acting is beyond dire. Stilted, wooden and laughable. It looks like an amateur film cobbled together by a university student. Actually, a uni student could do better. Let's say a film flung together by two sixteen year olds in their parents' basement. The production is woeful, the direction is woeful, the filmography is woeful. The storyline is laughable and the denouement predictable. Basically it's an hour and a half of a man banging the wooden equivalent of a fleshligh. And the irony is, the box was actually the least wooden thing about the film. Do yourself a favour ... if you're toying with watching this sorry excuse for a movie, slap some paint on the wall and watch that dry instead.

Well worth watching

Just watched this on Amazon Prime and its pretty cool film, albeit the ending is a little predictable. Good storyline and well paced. Full of twists and turns and I would recommend.

Better than average low budget horror film
Verified purchase
We really enjoyed this.
Pretty original concept, a few twists, nicely understated score. This isn't your usual teen slasher movie, more like Cronenberg on a budget.
The protagonist protagonist gets nastier as he sinks into his addiction, while you're left wondering..... 'what's in the box?'

Unusual and kept me guessing. I enjoyed it. It reminded me of Thinner as highlighted by another reviewer.
