A decent film except for the ending
9 November 2016 | by mjsregSee all my reviews

Just about everything about this film is good. Good acting, camera- work, lighting, and so on.

The only thing that let it down as far as I am concerned is the ending.

Having built up the story (which was well written and well acted) and drawn the viewer into the events I was expecting more of an explanation through the final sequences of why they had happened.

The ending felt rushed and perhaps edited a bit too much to keep the film within time.

But apart from that, the film was enjoyable and certainly as good as similar films in the horror genre.
