Vivien: [to the disbelieving group] This is not... a school. It isn't a prison, no. This is a farm. And they raise us here like sheep.
Ava: Miss Brixil...
Vivien: The sponsors do not want to adopt us. All they care about is our skin, and they will take you downstairs and skin you like an animal!
Ava: You're lying!

User Reviews

Above Average !
9 March 2019 | by magicbymiketurnerSee all my reviews

I gave this movie six stars which to me is just above average. It was entertaining with a few thrills. There is a twist that surprised me. Its young cast did a good job in their roles. I would recommend that you not pay the expense of streaming it and check it out at redbox when it is available.
