Prom Night and Saw V

I rented "Prom Night", remake of the 80's horror film. It may have looked stylish, but it was a worthless piece of film. Why: because the main character remains a victim throughout the entire film. When trapped by the killer she shouts "leave me alone" instead of picking up the phone and calling for help. Everyone around her dies, she screams, she cries, and except for a brief scene she does nothing to fight off her attacker. Her salvation comes in the form of a police officer with a loaded bullet. Horror films should always have a sense of catharsis. This does not. Not worth anyone time.

Oh, and "Saw V"? Worthless, pointless and stupid. Note to producers: stop making them. You should've stopped with part 3.
