Loved it
14 May 2017 | by pkawskiSee all my reviews

It was engaging. It draws you in. Acting was really good. It is unusual for a "horror" type movie to be so good. This is no slasher. Not predictable like most of the movies about summoning devil /dark rituals etc. I did not expect much but I was positively surprised. I specifically signed up to give that movie a good review as it deserves it :)
