Far better than you'd expect
17 December 2019 | by timbrowning-88050See all my reviews

Good pace, shocks and suspense. We saw this with it billed as a bad film. No its not! It comes across as a cross between a Disney and a Tarrantino production. Would have to be shown after the 9pm TV watershed though....
