I can't find a film that entertains and scares me. I didn't expect much from this one.
It wasn't scary but it kept me entertained. It was better than a lot of American over CGI'd and overacted movies but with the usual flIckering lights and jump scare tactics
Overall better than some famous so called horror films.
