It clearly delivers more than the concept promises and definitely is worth watching.

This is a very bad movie and normally I always appreciate any effort the movie makers do to entertain the audiences but this was really below average kind of flick, with really dragged on story and bad bad acting...

Even the ending was bland.

In a way, the film felt like it was too long, sometimes to the point of boredom.

I guess on paper the plot sounds pretty trite.

You can make them as typical and predictable as you like and fans will like them.

Jenna (Scout Taylor-Compton) whose boyfriend is killed in the confusing opening scene agrees to come "out of her comfort zone" (clever play on words) and go to a remote cabin owned by Uncle Wade (Tyler Mane) a man who loves the noble weed.

Exciting and thrilling.

And they do use a lot of that recipe and then they forget to add the meat and potatoes and you're left with a very empty experience.

The story is so contrived that this is not a bad guess.

I thought it was really pretty suspenseful and riveting.

Tyler Mane is a completely disposable pointless character brought in strictly for Rob Zombie Halloween fans.

Suspenseful .

It is so contrived to the point of being unbelievable.

The banal rolls of the characters (drunken/stoner jerk, good guy, good girl (troubled) and good girl's hot best friend who's dating jerk) all feel only too familiar, and many of the shots are simply screaming for "psycho-killer emerges from behind-bush hiding and slashes gut".

I had two questions on my mind when popping 247°F into the DVD player: 'How the hell are they going to make being stuck in a sauna engrossing for an entire film?

I recommend anyone enjoying the suspense/horror/thriller genre films, not because it is the best movie ever, but because it's a just an interesting ride, plus a lot of eye candy, that girl in pink is worth watching even more than 90 mins.

Worst movie I have ever seen .

Overall I'd say it is a good movie worth watching if you're a fan of horror movies although it is a little serious for my liking.

The film is slow developing and once things start to happen, it is still slow and must be filled in with outside events and flashbacks.

Don't waste your time on this garbage, no matter how much you love the horror genre, no matter how high your tolerance for amateur movies...

The plot is absolutely pointless and serves no purpose whatsoever.

Thrilling, frustrating, and infuriating.

"I should have turned it off after I saw the confusing opening, "based on true events" and "3 years later.

However, the characters were awfully genetic and mundane.

I would have no problem showing this to a 3rd grader, thats how boring it was.

If it's on and you're bored then give it a go.

"247°F" would be a great short film, but as a full length feature becomes tedious and redundant.

Uninteresting movie .

From the beginning to the end totally uninteresting movie.

An intriguing idea for a film whose claustrophobic set-up appealed, let alone the more obvious danger facing our protagonists.

Instead it drags on with pointless sub characters and completely misses the mark of what it could have been.
