This is different, unique, and for the very small budget is pretty 'damn' (pun) good!
12 July 2018 | by magician-humphreySee all my reviews

I liked the story and most of the effects are cool, in my opinion. All in all not half bad. I'm bias because I love different ideas and I love sci-fi.... Having said that, I can see why some people would call this crap and I do agree with the point made about it could've been so much more....

Still I do think it's good and I really liked what happens in the story, so I think both these downsides just comes under the 'small budget' umbrella....

Good work!!! I hope there is a second one that is gifted a 'higher power budget' to expand and exploit the character(s) more and move the story even further forward. :D
