Tepid verging on tedious

"After reading the two reviews, I purchased this movie and ran home to watch it. While I am not a fan of hollywood and prefer movies that are low in budget, occasionally, I have found with low budget 'horror' movies, the people who act in them seem like they just learned their lines in a hurry while eating a doughnut at the craft table. The script occasionally looms over unimportant information to give a tinge of real life banal conversation (I note specifically a conversation over a tea kettle and whether or not it still dribbles) and like many 'scary' movies gives the main baddy a list of coy phrases after he's killed someone.
The make up and CGI are laughable - specifically the ridiculous scene when they take the bible with the 'remnant.' The blood was like 70s bubble lettering. Oh, and on the subject of the scene when they find the remnant - exactly how many years were those candles lit for? 20? 30? That's incredible - perhaps they should have done a movie about a candle that can be lit for so long.
I will admit that there is one scene that had me giggling for a while when the baddy runs into a convenience store to get something to cover up his personal stench. Perhaps this movie should have come with the Stetson cologne to pour over the disk after watching it. P.U. ..."
NOT A TYPICAL MOVIE
