A must-watch!
19 February 2017 | by chelseazomersSee all my reviews

I was really excited about this movie when the trailer came out, I could not wait to see it. But after reading multiple bad comments about the film, I got worried.

But I must say, nothing to worry about. The movie is kinda weird maybe, but if you watch the trailer you know what you're settling in for, I suppose.

The story develops itself kinda slow, but that didn't bother me cause I was intrigued by the story. The movie has good actors, a great setting and atmosphere.

It kinda reminded me of Shutter Island, I think because of the whole "mystery island with a weird cure-institution"-thing.
