Gothic Snail Tale
4 January 2019 | by oldgraywolfSee all my reviews

This is a slow-moving tale that is hard to follow at first if it was done differently it might have been more interesting of a story. If you can make it to the end the story comes together to be sure to pay attention to the ending. I still believe if done differently the interlude from the beginning to the near end could have been an adventure to get to the truth. It actually gets exciting at the end of the movie, the grand old house and women have some surprises for you. The Culmination of the storyline is somewhat worth the interlude it takes to get there, the tale becomes complete a chilling ending in store for those who stay alert. All in all, for an indie movie it's not bad my wife and me tend to like thrillers, horror movies, and lower budget films.
