OK I was looking forward to this and I was just satisfied with the movie. It looked good had a dark look and tone but was very average throughout. The acting was quite wooden at times which maybe the script has to be blamed. A few good scares but not enough to warrant a cinema release.
I wanted to see it as it's been getting slammed badly.
It was not terrible but was not great either.
Surprised That the name was what it was should have been called The Room.
A not bad score but not enough to spend $13 on this.
Should have gone VOD.
