Awesome Indie.
22 September 2013 | by (Texas) – See all my reviews

I am a huge fan of indie films. When I came across this the other night I added it to my netflix list to watch. I started watching it last night and couldn't wait to finish it today. This movie's story line is genius. I would have to say that the way the story develops is brilliant. I love the fact that my brain was stimulated the whole time. There were so many levels to this movie, which made it so very intriguing to watch.

Now can I just say this... Rory Culkin is sexy in this film. I don't know quite what it is, but I get these weird attractions sometimes. I don't want to get into detail about the movie, but I suggest you watch it. I was hooked. After the movie was over, I was like that was a great movie.
