It is actually 4 movies ... almost. And it is supposed to be fun. So don't take it too seriously. And because it is 4 different segments, you also get a bit of different feeling in every one of them. It is also a testament to the director/actor Noel Clarke that he made a story about four women.
And he did not make it too cliché. The women all feel comfortable in their roles. The story is nice enough and moves along at a nice pace. There is enough mystery to keep you guessing and the suspense level is fair. Still this is not going to challenge your mind or anything, it is just a nice little "Snack", to be enjoyed as it is. There are flaws of course, but they are easily forgiven, when the movie is that much fun to watch!
