In their extremely negative review, they say that “Hooper’s cheesy, ham-fisted ghost story is marred by unimaginative f/x and leaden dialogue.”
They also explain that “this limp attempt at local horror takes elements from Rosemary’s Baby, The Grudge and others, thrown together into a cheesy…ghost story about an Emirati couple moving back from the States and tormented by a vengeful wraith.”
It gets worse. “Hooper’s lack of engagement isn’t helped by unimaginative f/x and leaden dialogue,” they add.
Brutal. I was really hoping for a Hooper resurrection with this, especially considering the trailer (below) is pretty cool.
