Better than expected
25 October 2019 | by fayelovesgreendaySee all my reviews

I was expecting this to be awful and especially in the first 5 mins but it was actually really scary and the acting was decent for a horror movie, if you are looking for a way to kill time with your friends i definitely recommend you go see this movie, it was pretty good
