Sounded interesting. Ended porrly.
9 May 2018 | by eddiedoverSee all my reviews

Honestly, the first 10 minutes of this were interesting and then it all went downhill from there. The actors were trying their best but the writing was complete garbage and it honestly seemed like the majority of this film was centered around getting the female lead into as many skimpy outfits as possible. Combine all this with completely unnecessary and not plot relevant sexual scenes and I think I can figure out what the Directors true motivation was.

If you want horror, you won't find it here. If you want 'thought provoking' you won't find that either. However, if you LOVE pretentious films? You'll absolutely love this film. Worst thing I ever saw.
