An utterly slow-moving and barely-there Horror film doesn't have a whole lot going for it as it's a drama for the majority of the time and never gives itself off as a horror film until the last act, where she tries to kill off the child. This, though, is done in some of the most seemingly innocuous and utterly ridiculous manners possible, never laying a hand on the child but persuading the child to put itself in danger only to be luckily saved each time. While it may work the first few times, after the fifth save from the harrowing death, it just grows tiresome and really works against itself, especially the ludicrous manners she tries to accomplish it under but also because each one doesn't work through her inactivity in killing the child, effectively killing most of it's suspense. That this is the only reason why it gives itself off as a horror film makes this one terribly boring and hardly worthwhile.
