Awfully done
14 June 2021 | by mattfrancis-03963See all my reviews

Absolutely awful movie from Mexico or wherever. I'll give it to you straight the film was far worse than I expected having being advertised well on Netflix. To my disbelief instead of what appeared a horror jump scare with emotion instead we got some out of shape Mexicans, unattractive weak female leads and a bit of a falling out over who gets to force the woman to a bit of whatever. Oh and they showed they make gum using ingredients from trees. No havoc, no good sorry and very bland. Not good.
