    So mind-blowingly horrible that it teeters on the edge of cinematic immortality. show more

    Even Boll seems to lose interest as the story unravels. By that time, the supernatural cliches, plot inconsistencies, dead ends and red herrings have piled up so high you can barely see the screen. show more
