The move to Hollywood was somewhat hectic for David F. Sandberg and his wife, requiring that Losten quit her day job in order to do so. Once in Hollywood the two were unable to get an apartment due to a lack of credit, forcing them to rent Airbnb on a monthly basis. See more »
(at around 14 mins) When the social worker is talking to Rebecca, she asks if Martin is her brother. Rebecca responds that they are step-siblings. This is factually untrue since we learn later on in the movie that they both have the same mother. Therefore, they are half-siblings, not step-siblings. See more »

I went into this knowing that it was rated above average for a horror movie and came out feeling like I am on a totally different page.
It contains all the clichés of a typical, low budget horror movie with one-dimensional characters, a loose plot, weak acting, glaring stigma towards individuals with mental illness, and more. The fact that it is unable to hit the 1hr 30min mark should have warned me there was little substance and I did not find myself invested in the characters or the unveiling of the truth behind the situation. On a sidenote, there was not much to look forward to with the scariest moments already portrayed in the trailer as well. Terribly mediocre.
