Warning: SPOILERS AHEAD. It cannot be helped due to stupidity of film.
Plot: A bunch of friends are having a New Year’s Eve party, but events take an extremely crazy turn that leads to dark secrets being revealed and just total mayhem.
Review: There is absolutely nothing that can help redeem this utterly ridiculous Polish horror comedy, which includes an opening sequence with bumbling detectives flushing vital evidence down the toilet and then callously contaminating the crime scene, and a cast of characters that are so annoyingly unlikeable and stupid.
The scenes or events that are meant to induce the dark comedic elements only leave you shaking your head in utter disbelief as to how idiotic and brainless the actions of the characters are. What pretty much starts the entire mess is that someone gets high and horny and opens a locked box to discover a gun. Said person then proceeds to have sex while holding said gun (which, by the way, is loaded) and aiming it all over the place! Gun safety? Anyone?
Things get pretty raunchy and gruesome soon afterwards, and then it’s a slippery slope into total nonsense that is so far from being amusing it is not even remotely funny. They basically all fall like dominoes as everything gets from bad to worse, and it all starts and ends with the same smoking gun…literally!
The film is also a disaster of epic proportions when one realises how clumsily the writers tried to explain certain connections between specific characters.
By the end of the chaotic mess you are left wondering, “What the heck did I just watch?” The only thing remotely interesting about this movie is the title. Take my word for it, you need to stay really far away from this one! It’s awful people. Don’t say that I didn’t warn you.

Dark Alice has an old soul and a curious mind. I believe that anyone can be a hero and that the good guys should always win! I dislike cruelty to animals and think that they have far superior qualities to humans. My motto is there is no future without the past. I also have a weird penchant for Paranormal TV shows even though the slightest sound makes me jump. I enjoy writing reviews and throwing in fun facts to pique the readers’ curiosity. My ultimate goal in life would be to become a published writer one day. You can find me as Dark Alice Reviews on Facebook, my Instagram is alice_oscura and my Twitter handle is @lise_veliz2.
