Complete waste of time
10 October 2017 | by nickyfefSee all my reviews

Omg what a complete pile of sh this movie was. If you are considering watching this film please do not waste the hour and a half that it will steal from your life. I think it is especially frustrating considering the premise of this film had potential and there was obviously some interesting themes which COULD HAVE been explored here although it seems as if the director basically decided he didn't give enough of a f to string any of it together in any type of compelling way whatsoever. I mean honestly I feel like there was just no effort here at all, all of the terrible acting included (even the cast seemed bored). I really don't remember ever feeling this scolded after watching a film in my entire life. Me and my girlfriend searched for a thought provoking thriller for a while before we came across this joke of a movie. We waited for something to bring it together in a realistic or compelling way, and unfortunately implemented enough patience to wait until the entire piece of Sh had ran its course. It was literally so bad that I now have trouble committing to watching any other "suspenseful" movies for the fear of being this disappointed once again. I could get into deeper detail explaining this movies flaws but honestly where do I even start. This movie has literally ruined movies for me, at least for the time being. I didn't even know that a movie could make me feel so frustrated and disappointed. Great, its pizzed me off so much that its managed to push me to creating an IMDb account specifically to write this review, thus wasting even more of my time than the initial 1.5 hours of spew that I sat through. oh well, at least by writing this I may be able to prevent the same from happening to you.
