Though MMMM benefits from a tense, oppressive atmosphere that captivates the viewer, the scenario turns out to be quite shallow and underexploited. The ending is annoying and makes you think Sean Durkin didn't know where he was going and how to end his movie.
The alleged stylized cinematography is in fact pretty cheap with the intensive use of the zoom, and a lot of shots feel forced
The only satisfaction is Elizabeth Olsen that portrayed her character quite well.
All in all, the movie didn't live up to its potential and the ending leaves a bitter taste.
