Cringeworthy

This review system really needs negative star options, because rubbish like this doesn’t deserve anything positive. It is a product of a state funded arts scheme, a sort of dole for otherwise unemployable ‘creatives’. This bunch should go back to stocking supermarket shelves.
The ‘plot’ (to be charitable) is a audio rip off / melange of ‘Rosemary’s Baby’ / ‘Blair Witch Project’. The ‘acting’ is sufficiently wooden to leave splinters in your eardrums.
Overall, the impression is of a drama school term project by the class losers, given a C- solely because the markers are worried about the students self-esteem.
Please don’t judge New Zealand by this embarrassment.
