User Reviews

Just a slight warning, can't rate it because it would be unfair.
25 November 2019 | by michaelnobleb-83955See all my reviews

I'm not sure why I'm writing this review to be quite honest. I saw this movie about seven years ago. Since then I've gotten married, had children, had my share of ups and downs, but one thing remains constant. More often than not, I take a few seconds out of my week to think about this movie and the impression that it has left on me. A problem I didn't realize I had until just now in this moment. I came here to check the reviews on a movie to watch with my kids and ended up subconsciously typing this movie into the search bar.

This is just to serve as a warning to people what kind of movie this is. I've seen my share of movies that left me with an unsettling feeling, but none quite like this. Its unnerving in a way that may leave an imprint on your brain if you are that type of person.

Can't rate it, because it would be unfair, in my opinion. Because no other movie has every left its hold on me like this one, and for that alone it would be rated to high in my mind. Not saying to watch it or not to watch it, just saying be ready for a trip that you may stay on for along time after the ride is over, if not for the rest of your life.
