As a collector of 'series' of horrors, to try and get the full catalogues etc etc, I just had to buy this film.
And despite the negative comments from some of my fellow reviewers I have to say that, as far as I'm concerned, the film is so far removed from the Lector films for 90% of it's duration, that it gets to a point where, in my opinion, you start to forget there is a connection.
Personally I think that it is worth a watch and the main reason that it is marked down is because of the association with the other films.
Although, do not expect the same level of horror, as to me this is more of a thriller than a horror, and therefore think that it is being a lil' misreported by calling it so.
Which in itself creates a level of disappointment to those expecting it.
Truthfully, it's not a bad watch, so don't be put off.
