Didn't know where this was going
23 July 2018 | by ShftyEyedGoatSee all my reviews

Yes this is a lower budget movie and yes the repeated chords of music to add emotion to a scene are a bit overdone. Yes there are some plot holes about internet in a forest. However the plot holes are technically explained.

As titled I didn't know where this was going. It appears to be an odd haunting but turns into much more. I feel it was very well done and a new look into possibly done tropes but so much of it was just done so well. The acting was enjoyable and the revelations in the story are great. I feel the last 10 minutes could have been condensed to about 2 and I would have loved this movie much more.

Don't give into wanting the jump scares of horror, watch this and get taken through an emotional story.
