pretty good
30 January 2019 | by wildblueyonderSee all my reviews

Hey whattya want from a low budget horror flick?

the plot moves along, a little slow for my taste at first but it picks up.

my big complaint was the production value, everything is so dark and its like they are trying to create a surreal atmosphere... to me it got in the way.

still i liked it... for what it is
