    So I saw this in the store the other day and it looked somewhat interesting to me. I figured with Gina Phillips and Tom Sizemore it has be at least worth watching. Tonight I was checking what was available On-Demand on Comcast since I have a few free movie coupons from them, and this was there so I watched it.
    After getting done I feel like I just took a bullet for any horror fan I can warn to stay away to from this piece of shit. I knew it could suck, but never thought it would be half as bad as it was. I can't even say what it was I hated so much besides everything. Instead here's a couple reviews that kinda sum up my feelings. One,two, and a couple quotes from another with huge spoilers:

    "Tom Sizemore is the only “big” name actor in the film and honestly, he did a better job in his sex tape than in this."

    "You’d think distributors would say “Hey let’s give them some cool features to add to their experience of watching this crapsterpiece.” "


    At least it wasn't predictable, as I still don't know what the fuck it was supposed to mean. Just avoid this. Wish I would've went checked the reviews first.

    You have been warned.

    I swear that I thought this thread was going to be about Rosie O'Donnell's bath tub. How disapointing :(

    Thanks for the warning. I almost picked this one up the other day because the trailer kinda looked good. I won't touch it now though :fuck:

    I rented this one a couple weeks back, and it looked fairly interesting to me also. But, it bored the hell out of me. It's not absolutely terrible, but far from good.

    I almost got this too, but then I went flashing back to the funny but psychologically damaging review of Sizemore's porno tape that was posted here and couldn't go through with it. I guess maybe in this one instance I was saved by porn. Hmm. I don't feel good about that. Maybe I need to go to church or something. :eek2:

    I, too, thought this thread was going to be about some horrifying news item about Rosie O'Donnell, wafting our way like farts on the wind.

    Yes, stay away from the gawdawful Ring Around the Rosie. At least I saw it for free from the library.

    Exit to Eden with Rosie O'Donnell is much more scary!!

    This was truly a shit sandwich. Nothing happens in the damn thing! How it got an R rating is completely beyond me.

    Maybe the ratings board thought it had something to do with La O'Donnell too, and they were thinking of the children...

    Oh, man. I was hoping so bad that the Rosie The Retard movie was coming to DVD. I missed it on TV. It came up in conversations at two different parties this weekend--maybe I need new friends....??

    Dug this DVD out to see if I wanted to keep it. Couldn't remember a thing about it. Started out okay, super Lifetime-ey, but eventually got pretty dull. Nothing happens, then it has a dumb ending. It was awkward to watch because it's written as though Tom Sizemore's character is supposed to be an attractive mysterious groundskeeper... but Tom Sizemore is just kind of gross. Apparently he molested a child on the set of Born Killers, which was made around the same time as this movie. It didn't seem to hurt his career though, as he's still got a couple dozen IMDB credits currently in production. Gross.

    I also watched another Gina Philips movie, this one I had bought way back when but had never watched. It was called The Sickhouse, and it was a pretty boring movie where teenagers wander through an asylum the whole movie. Poorly shot, poorly edited, hard to follow. It was almost the same movie as Death Tunnel.
