"Comes another mess filmed in Romania trying to look like Connecticut. I was hoping for something unique as Jamie King has been a local favorite since she came through here years ago right after filming this movie (for The Tripper). The Weinstein circus held onto this a few years and released this as a bare bones DVD.
This strange story centers on three ladies who have been friends since childhood. The opening sequence shows this adult triumvirate seducing three unsuspecting men into their doom, followed by flashbacks of something tragic and similar in nature happening during their adolescence. The oft confused and convoluted story continues with a spattering of psychosis, lunacy and almost more screen time of the young actors over the present day adult actresses.
Laundry list: The fact they filmed in Romania pops up more times than the Connecticut license plates (obvious European ambulance and other vehicles), this whole ominous voice that fills one character's head is never materialized, the continual (and pointless to the story) long shots of nature elements to an Enya style score, all add up to a frustrating time spent watching Jamie King overplay her psycho role in hopes of giving the film a dark who-is-the-real-cuckoo feel.
The film quality looks good, the sound is a decent 5.1, there are no supplements and there are one or two decent songs. Not horrible but not good either as the performances and story cancel each other out in getting a higher rating."
