Don't waste your time on this.
24 April 2017 | by highpitchedpiratesSee all my reviews

After reading the synopsis for this movie, I went in knowing that it was likely going to be a disappointment.

It was even worse than I suspected it would be.

I know that it's popular to cast older actors to play teenagers and a lot of them can get away with it, the actors cast in this film look their real life ages which are mid to late 20's.

They acting is atrocious, there are moments where it sounds like they're reading their lines from cue cards and the writing is horrible.

Another thing that really bothered me was the amount of times the other characters repeated the name of the main girl, Cassie, I have no idea what any of the other characters are called but they were determined that you know her name.

I had to stop watching after 30 minutes because it was just painful to watch.
