It's a love story, alright.
6 December 2016 | by darryrmurphySee all my reviews

Simply put, the majority of the world is not ready for this film. The themes portrayed in this are of a different sort horror lovers are used to and what regular folks will shrivel in disgust at. For the horror/psych thriller buff that has a knack for twisted love stories this is made for you. The buildup may be slow and you think you know what you're getting, but you don't. Trust me, you don't. Every twist I thought I saw coming...gave me another twist I wouldn't have expected. Acting wise I think Monaghan and Solo portray the characters as they're supposed to be. Downplayed, not glamorized. The twists do lack some sort of oomph factor, which sadly doesn't make it a perfect movie, but there's some strange satisfaction at the end because you understand what they mean by 'a love story'. This is certainly a new take if I've ever seen one. Just for jokes: The nice guy doesn't finish last, technically...but the nice guy surely isn't the one who gets laid.
