Too many jumps, too many questions

"Evil Eyes is the story of a writer, portrayed by Adam Baldwin, that finds that what he writes comes true, in a tale eerily similar to the true crime movie he happens to be working on. In that case, a writer director turned serial killer after everything he wrote came true.
However, while this movie had the power to be fun and scary, like Stephen King's Dark Half, I had a few problems with the film.
One: The editing style on the film is choppy, and the story jerks around quite a bit. Several times you're left wondering if what you saw actually transpired or if it only occurred within the realm of the story.
Two: Even after one of his best friends is killed in a manner parallels a story he just wrote, the writer continues to picture friends in the scenes, or to write scenes about people he knows. This doesn't seem very logical to me.
Over all this is one of the better films to be produced by Asylum lately, and it shows their growth as a movie house.

"Not one of your better movies. It was ok but I will not watch it again."
