I went into this movie expecting nothing. The start of this film is very slow, that lasts about the first 15 min then it's a roller coaster to the end. I think they must have spent close to half the special effects money on blood alone. Mellisa Leo should get another Oscar nomination for her acting in this role. Mellisa and Michael Parks brought this film to life. I'm very glad that I watched this movie it has shown a new perspective into the writing styles of Kevin Smith and the bold statement to produce and sell it fully independent of all major studios. Good work Kevin Smith.
