Decent thriller worth a watch!
6 October 2016 | by (Worldwide) – See all my reviews

When her husband dies Bryony tries to rebuild her life with her young son James. The young actor who plays James provides a terrific performance. James in typical movie fashion starts acting weird and withdrawn.

Although parallels could be made to something like "Babadook" and even "Kill List" this UK chiller really does stand out on its own.Some really good performances help enhance the quality of the script. Although there are some jump scares here and there they do not overdo it.

Kudos to the crew as for a low budget independent film they do a very good job
