The monster costume interested me in the film, but said movie's content was dull.

The Devil monster was scary and the whole thing kept me on the edge of my seat.

After a slow start, "13th Child" proves itself an interesting monster in the woods film.

Is she frightened, pleasantly intrigued, or just bored with delivering dialogue that is so painfully unnatural?

This was so slow, boring, uneventful, and just plain ignorant.

Anyway the film goes on and on, with the same boring dialouge, interupted by scenes that weren't needed (A sex scene happens in an abanoded trailer between two white trash folk (The trashiest I've ever seen).

I thought the photography was great and the story interesting and intriguing.

One of the worst movies I've ever seen.

13th Child is a rubbish horror film that tries to have supernatural overtones but it's all so boring & bland & exceedingly slow, a half decent monster & one or two gory bits can't come close to saving this one hour & forty minute bore.

Uneven, but ultimately enjoyable.

Quite possibly the world's worst movie .

You know the type, they think the remake of TCM is better than the original, and they think Hitchcock's Psycho was boring between the killings and should have been in color.

The title, come to think of it, does work on one level-it must have cost thirteen bucks to make, with thirteen people, in thirteen days, and with thirteen pages of pointless script.

There was no story line, or I should say the plot was very week, the Jersey Devil looked completely fake, and the violence is very laughable.

What a complete waste of time to watch this dreadful piece of sh*t!!

The Devil in this movie looks like a rip off of Alien, the acting is so bad, it looked like they just wanted to leave, cant blame them.

This has got to the worst movie I have ever seen.

What a waste of time.

Poor treatment of a fascinating subject .

She looked and acted just like what she drove around in, a dull, pale old VW Bug!!

Don't waste your time.

The only thing I could think of when I left the theater was, Yucky!

The film has the fun stylings of those campy drive-in horror films, but aside from that, suffers from painfully long/slow scenes coupled with downright derivative imagery.

We had the token black guy and Chris Atkins playing a part that was as dull as anything he's ever done, would we expect anything else though.

I know I am a bit biased on the horror, monster movie genre as I like all kinds and types but of all I have seen this must be close to the top of my 10 worst movies I have seen.

It is one of the worst movies I have ever seen.

The Legend of the Jersey Devil is a fascinating piece of folklore/legend/myth.

Whom she had to suck for a leading part in this piece of crap should die a slow death.

What a Waste of Time!!.

For a start the script is painfully slow, at one hour & forty minutes long 13th Child felt like it went on forever & I was seriously bored.

The lead actress was boring and playing that cliché cop role females always portray.

In my opinion, don't waste your time because my friends and I sure did.

We then get a "20 years later" text to take us away from this pointless nonsense that was shot with a hand held video camera that looked badder than bad.

There were parts that were stupid, and there were incredibly boring parts.

The absolute WORST waste of my life I've ever had the misfortune to endure.

It was bland, definatly not horror and totally destroyed a really good legend.

Worst movie EVER.
