Storyline: A young couple during their honeymoon find themselves invited to an after dark party. They don’t remember much and the woman becomes pregnant and now sinister things and haunting start to happen during her pregnancy term.
Review (Spoils): Samantha (Allison Miller) and Zach McCall (Zach Gilford) head to Santo Domingo for their honeymoon. After drinking and partying for about a week they end their night for a fortune teller. Samantha does not like what she heard and becomes upset. So a cab driver (Roger Payano) takes them to a hidden secret location to party for their final night. They wake up hung over and head back home to America. Not long after Samantha becomes pregnant and they get all excited but strange things start to happen. Weird ultrasounds, serious bleeding, screaming for no reason, eating raw meat, and killing deer with her bare hands, priests in pain, some serious anger issues and the typical pregnancy stuff.
This film could have been a whole lot more if they would have given up the typical video camera view. This is done waaay too much lately and the film did have a plot that could have been fun. Really let’s be honest who the hell films everything in their lives like this? Too bad because the film was not bad but there was some serious holes in the story such as where are the neighbours in this whole mess? Things are being smashed and people disappearing but no cops or people calling the police? The husband is a total dick I have no idea why this babe would marry hm. Some of the effects were cool such as the throwing of people and the blood but multiple cameras in the house just made the film dumb.
Rating: This film could have been so much more but instead it was just annoying hand held footage of not possible. I think Allison Miller did a great job in the film but the holes in the storyline and reality of people being this stupid just ruined the film. God I hope they don’t do sequels of this.
