The situation becomes frayed when the lid to the urn mysteriously disappears, and Paul begins to experience happenings no-one else is aware of…


“This is a slow starter, no two ways around it. And it does get a bit confusing early on, especially with some special effect related edit flaws. In fact, the plot kinda meanders a bit, giving us flashbacks and dream sequences that really don’t seem to make any sense. But the story does finally settle in to itself, unfortunately almost at the end.” Horror News

“When Paul finally loses his mind, actor Arron Kinser loses all remaining credibility what is easily the most absurd performance of the year. Kinser is laughably bad, but his supporting actors do their best to distract from his ridiculous display with their own poor portrayals of the other characters. Cruel Will is not the least bit terrifying or entertaining.” Jason Vored

” …it seemed as if the entire cast was trying to outdo each other in a contest for “the most ridiculous acting ever”! There’s only one brilliant moment and that’s at the final scene. Had the complete movie looked like this excerpt, then it might have been something worth while to watch. Stunning slow-motion images, a hallucinatory scene and a rather surprising end.” Peter Pluymers
