Calling it like I see it, this has to be one of the weakest release weeks in quite some time. There’s simply not much going on. Of course, after being spoiled with a ton of great titles last week, we were destined for a letdown. If you’re looking for something new this week, Netflix Instant has released about 40 horror films since the beginning of September, which includes quite a few excellent choices.

MICAH SAYS: Most of the reviews I have tracked down for this flick have been positive. Sounds a lot like a plot twisted from “To Catch a Predator” with Chris Hansen. Meh.
