Great movie
31 December 2017 | by cityangelsSee all my reviews

I enjoyed the Scarapist. It is very suspenseful. I wondered how it would turn out. The actress playing Ilse is so good and very funny. There were some other funny moments tha I won't give away. My friends and I are going to watch it again. Really cool, fun, movie!
