Dumb movie. Why is the library ordering it AGAIN?

Dec 29, 2018

I have watched a lot of movies and even enjoyed a few artistic movies like The Ghost Story where the main character is just wearing a sheet over his head with two holes cut out for eyes. I have a feeling that the director of this movie was trying to depict what happens to a person's mind as they are deprived of oxygen as what was happening to the men on the U-boat. The U-boat was losing oxygen in which the crew was basically suffocating and the sub was still descending. Therefore, the crew was having these weird dreams or fantasies and that is what you are watching. It would be like going into the mind of a mental disturbed person. But with this movie the imagination of the crew is so bizarre that I find the movie a huge waste of my time. It was one of the worse movie's that I have actually watched and believe the library would be better off in getting rid of the movie and use the space for something better. However, I do not know what someone who studied the arts would rate the movie as it may contain some artistic valve! For entertainment, "IT SUCKS!"

Stupid dvd. Have you ever put a light under your chin to make yourself look scary? This is how the characters looked as the movie started. Juvenile. Then there's fake snow, no plot, more grotesque scenes and poor sound. We could't stand anymore of the 'offal piling, testicle weighing, bladder slapping' ugliness and stopped watching after about 10 minutes. Dumb.

this is horrible. lol i hate to give such an abysmal rating but omg. the only ones who enjoyed this was the bossy looking cancer bats and the degraded/ simp male feminist actors getting high on break. they took every liberty to just do anything at all to be fair there was some decent visual effects that probably took weeks. the insane visions of completely deluded dreamers- making a hoity toity drama class popularity contest of wannabe flakes into a highly wasteful and tired movie production.You can SEE that those involved had literally nothing whatsoever invested in this. WHO WOULD PUT THIS ON THEIR FILM PORTFOLIO it was seemingly made by people who literally hate you and me an the world. it literally was painful for 30 minutes and i wouldnt finish any more. an embarrasment to the concept of film. like why did this reach the dvd stage? there was nothing obvious to even be half salvageable from the footage. it exists because the government paid for it and you will die a brutal death of your soul and spirit and heart and body if you watch the whole film i believe. a grade 6 class would have done much better given full reign. this is a sad state of the value of college students in modern canada its the writing on the wall and its old already. this is not getting better its getting worse what is your problems you retards this is a babylon wh0re . god help us all.
they call it a phantasmagoria because its a uncommon/probably made up word representing S#1T.

Too strange for me! Watched about 2 minutes and ejected the dvd.

I found the editing to be the main problem here. Too much of flash cuts and scene warping. I don't recall Guy Madden's other films to be so irritating to watch.

Terrible movie. I don't know how this was one of 2015's top 100 movies according to Rotten Tomatoes (#59) and Metacritic (#32).

This is an example of a Horibble experimental film trying to pass it self off as art and some brain dead people buying it,
It's just so Bad. Unwatchable.
I could only handle like 3min.
Like other people I tried fast Forwarding hopping there was something watch able.
Nothing, Bad Acting, Shaking scenes, Bizarre sets and incoherent story.
The description sounded cool but its misleading.
Like this Line "voyage into the origins of their darkest fears"
Well my darkest fear is being forced to watch this.

15 Copies you got to be kidding,

I enjoy so many kinds of film, from slashers to artsy but THIS IS JUST B.A.D !!!!..I watched 15 minutes and could not find one worthy second of forward for a bit, try another part...even worse. No idea what this films intentions were, and am still shaking my head as to who would fund this sort of thing. Maybe others will get this just to see what I believe is THE WORST film I have ever tried to watch.
Just Junk.

I'm less patient. I gave it 5 minutes only. Not just because it struck me as intentionally bizarre but because the actors chewed the scenery.
