Amazing atmosphere but NO STORY
13 December 2020 | by arabnikitaSee all my reviews

The first 2 minutes got me so excited with it's dark atmosphere, crisp cinematography and great sound. As I watched, I got intrigued about where will it all lead..... Unfortunately, by 1 hour mark it was still going nowhere.

Yes the atmosphere is fantastic, the decorations are immersive but there is just no damn story which is such a shame. It could have been a gorgeous indie horror as it had decent creepiness that did get my heart beat up once or twice. Sadly, it felt like a cliche devil, priest blah blah blah...

Wasted potential
