Unsettling film, yet could not stop watching...
30 November 2016 | by jasmineporter12See all my reviews

I thoroughly enjoyed this movie. In the first 20 mins of the film, I was wondering what was up with the weirdness of it all. I just felt weird watching it, but it was a good kind of weird. The two female actors stole all of the scenes. They were fantastic. About halfway into the movie, I was wondering what was going to happen. I felt so inclined to skip to the end to see because sometimes I'd rather not wait. It was so intense, but I stuck it out and I was not disappointed. Great film. The movie overall was unsettling and dismal, but I liked the feel of it. Psychological dramas are my favorite. I would definitely watch The Ones Below again in the near future and it is definitely recommended.
