I really wished for this film to be good. It started that way: a cemetery, a priest committing suicide. Unfortunately, it all went pear-shaped from there. The priest turns up at all points in time and there wasn't even a twist to the killings which just felt...uncared for, which feels strange to say. C'mon! It's funny murders, but the film isn't fun, nor scary. As such - nah!
