"This movie is filmed in beautiful Santa Barbara, California, and features some great nature shots. That's the only good thing about it.
The premise was pretty good: a man loses his wife (because he's a jerk) and he goes to see some sort of witch to get a magic potion that will bring her back. Said potion, however, also resurrects the spirit of "the crier", a woman who drowned herself a few hundred years ago and vowed to seek her revenge. The newly in love couple decides to hold a party and invite a few other couples to their house. Strangely, for a party with a bunch of couples, there is no sex. Predictably, each wanders off into the environs one by one for whatever reason, where they each fall prey to the resurrected spirit of the crying woman. In the commentary track, the director and producer actually make fun of their own film, pointing out bad parts that I hadn't even noticed!
The acting is awful- I've seen kids in high school plays do better. The writing is bad- some of the dialogue is beyond ridiculous. The kills are not very inventive, and the gore is unrealistic.
In short: save your money."
