I don't know why this movie got bad reviews. It's good horror!
18 November 2017 | by sadielynnlehmanSee all my reviews

I'm giving this movie a ten out of ten because for some reason it got a lot of bad reviews. I watch a lot of horror movies and this one definitely deserves a better score than a 4.7. If you like jump scares and are a horror movie fan in general, it's worth a try. I loved it. If you enjoy a creepy story with good acting, which is hard to say for a lot of horror movies these days, watch it.
