Just bad.
18 February 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a simple movie. Any comparisons to Pan's Labyrinth are either misguided or a hopeful publicity grab. The child actress is very good, but her character should have been written younger to be believable. As is, she seemed as painfully dull as her family told her she was (which was horrid...horrid people). This was a complete waste of money and time. The entire movie was predictable and of low production quality.
