Pretty Awesome Movie
10 December 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Great little movie. People have trouble with labeling this horror. I'm a huge horror movie buff and at times this is definitely horror. Not flatout terrifying but because of the low-key way its told it is definitely creepy and scary.

Really great premise for a movie, don't wanna give it away.

Low budget for sure. A little higher production quality could really make this movie amazing. Better sound design, lighting, could go along way. But the low budget is what makes it work because your not really sure if its a boring indie film about nothing or a horror but it works. It just works.Story is great. Characters are frustrating and awkward but ultimately great. Ending was a bit awkward.

If you are a fan of horror I highly recommend this pic. Just great simple premise and a few ideas you haven't seen. Lots of fun. Great Pic
