Quotes

Haley: It'll be fine. The woman is a friend of mine. So she's done it a bunch of times for me. She'll kind of guide everyone through it, we'll just kinda have to follow her instructions. So just please, she is a friend of mine, not that I don't think you would, please take it seriously tho and be respectful.

Pleasantly Surprised!
6 August 2020 | by tmidd111273See all my reviews

This was nearly a perfect movie for me. Many studios and writers should take note that sometimes less is best. This is only 56 minutes. A minute more or a minute less would've probably taken the rating down two or 3. Acting-was very convincing. Not academy award worthy but good enough. Talented young ladies Special fx-not much but good enough. You can tell with what they had for a budget they worked hard to make it effective. Plot-some holes and "come on, seriously?" moments but nothing more ridiculous in most of the crap horror movies being released during Covid.

...check it out. Won't be disappointed.
