stressful to watch
22 January 2018 | by phenomynoussSee all my reviews

I was constantly on edge watching this film, waiting for the seemingly inevitable hatchet to drop (sometimes literally).

Describing any part of the plot feels like it would spoil the experience, because that's essentially what this film is; an experience. The worst part is it is filmed and acted in such a way that is highly realistic, exacerbating the tension.

the basic plot, without spoilers, is that the character Wyatt is receiving phone calls at night from a distorted voice telling him of "them". they look like people, but they're bad and must be killed. It is unclear whether this is true or not, or if Wyatt is suffering some manner of schizophrenia, and the fact that it could be one or the other only seems to enhance the terror
