harrowing, scary and believable
27 January 2015 | by phil_n_jasonSee all my reviews

Are just some of the words I can say about this movie! others would be! Bone chilling, nerve shattering, terror trip into insanity, and make you disbelieve that you just seen what you have seen. This movie really did leave me feeling totally disturbed to my wick. Yes I know I gave it a 10* this is how I reached the rating, 64 % Direction, 10% sound track, 23% production & cinematography & 3% acting. so overall is a 10*.

weather or not I would watch again? I think not! if disturbing movies that push all boundary's leaving you wanting to stay awake is your bag? then OK give the movie a go! If not avoid personally the movie should never have been made. But overall other than that I cant find fault in any level
