Good enough to want a sequel
26 July 2020 | by yahel02See all my reviews

Even though the film is a long way from being perfect, I think it can defenitly open a modern slasher franchise, with great and uniqe storytelling for this ganre. I'm really intrested in what Franco can further do with this concept. Dear Dave, if u see this - please, I want a sequel!
