Not a great one ,, but not as bad as the other reviews describe it to be ..
9 September 2018 | by Aktham_TashtushSee all my reviews

So the story is not an original one ,, watched a couple of movies about that that "ghoul" or "djin" that comes to you while you're paralyzed in sleep .. but to be fair ,, there was actually more than a couple of creepy seat jumping moments ... I mean it wasn't all bad ,, even the ending was just a bit improbable if i might say.

The cast were all good ,, Olga Kurylenko did a good job ,, such a talented beauty ,, I loved her back in 2007 Hitman ,, and to be honest haven't seen her much since ... That Dougie character "Craig Conway" was also really good.

Overall ,, Not the scariest movie in history ,, but it's not bad at all ... watch it at 2:00 am and you'll know what i mean :D
