Great movie
27 June 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This was a really good movie , actually it was a great movie.

This movie did not take long to get going and what a way to start a movie.

With the pregnant lady , It was nasty not gory, it was nasty as it is a really nasty thing to do.

I really like the rest of the movie, as we get to see the father is scared of going out side her house, which gives their movie more of a intense feel to it.

You may be thinking this sounds like a nether movie called them however this movie is far from it as it is a bit of a plot later in the movie.

I don't know if I miss it, I don't think they explained who or what they were.

Fantastic acting , and great movie 9/10
