To be honest with you, I have no idea why people gave this movie such a low ranking. I mean, without a doubt, it's not a movie that would get nominated for an Oscar, yet at the same time as the first ever Ukrainian-language teen-horror movie in the history of Ukraine, it should get some well-deserved praise.
I mean with the current Ukrainian market flooded with big-budget Hollywood movies and crap-quality Russian movies, a movie where characters speak Ukrainian naturally, rather thant dubbed into Ukrainian, is like a gulp of fresh air.
I give this move 8/10, because it's the first ever Ukrainian- language teen-horror movie that would be great to watch in a company of fellow Ukrainians when you just want to relax and have some fun.
UPD. Turns out movie director, Liubomyr Levytskyi also dubbed the movie into Ukrainian (tl:dr, even though movie was actually shot in Ukrainian, Levytskyi believed that dubbing the moview would make it sound more "Hollywood like". Makes no sense but that's what it is)
