I actually had seriously high hopes for this one, I'd read that it was full of twists, brutal and shocking and well all things I liked. Instead I found this to be a boring predictable take on the handicapped person who sees something they shouldn't have story. This time our character Billy is mute, and a make-up artist who is working on a slasher film (cute eh?). She ends up seeing a murder, then has to escape and get the cops to believe what she saw. It sounds better than it is, but since many folks like this a whole lot better than I did I guess don't trust my judgement. I just thought this actually dragged on a fair bit not to mention the fact that I didn't really care about any of the characters and if anything I wanted more murders!
