Wow this movie opens with the worst intro I have ever seen. It’s done in such a way that all of the backgrounds don’t match the actors/actresses and calling them actors is a stretch. It was the so bad the first thing I did was search for the actors other films because there had so be a reason I had no clue who these people were. The two “actors” that were billed the highest were two porn stars but thankfully IMDB says there are no nude scenes in the film so I didn’t not stumble into a nasty porn film by mistake. Unlike Sasha Grey who was in “Would You Rather” it doesn’t seem like these two are looking to better their acting and have a serious acting career. There is even one of the actresses that also works in production (and owns one of the companies that works on the film).

“In ancient Egypt, Isis and Osiris ruled the land. All were happy for the couple except one, Set, a jealous man who killed Osiris in order to take over his kingdom. Isis snuck into Osiris’ tomb and tried to raise him from the dead using her black magic. Set caught Isis in the act and had Osiris cut to pieces, with each piece buried in a different part of the land, so Isis could never again raise her husband. Isis vowed to avenge Osiris’ death and return with him to rule over all the worlds. Now, six college students Kyle, Dustin, Felicia, Jay, Serena and Amy take their last course in archeology in anticipation for graduation. Their last assignment is to uncover and document the museum’s new acquisitions with their teacher, Professor Shields and world-renowned Egyptologist Dr. Nasir. During the night they haphazardly awaken the ancient spirit of Isis’ lost soul and her wrath is unleashed on the group. As students start to disappear one by one, they must band together to stop Isis from rising her dead lover Osiris and his evil army of the dead, and exacting their revenge upon the world”- IMDB

Now I had to get the recap from IMDB because I honestly could barely pay enough attention to figure what the heck was going on. It was the most boring film I have watched in a long time, I even stopped paying attention to talk repetitive motion injuries because that was more entertaining than the movie. More often than not I had o guess at who was the hosting the spirit/body of Isis and the easy way to guess that by who is acting like the biggest slut. It was that simple, there was no nudity but there was enough implied.

The acting was the some of the worst I have ever seen. Honestly the people in this movie should be ashamed of themselves for their performances. I don’t think one line of dialog was delivered with any sort of believability or care. Frankly I hope they never work in film again. The effects were just as bad and so was the soundtrack. This review is done because I think I care about the film more than they did.

Grade F
