A Few good parts but the rest is really poor
2 August 2017 | by atinderSee all my reviews

The plot sounded really good, there were some good ideas here and there.

I enjoy some of the death Scene, ,as they were bit like Final Destination but not on the same level as those deaths.

The acting was a mixed bag , some scenes felt good and others felt forced.

Also some of the script was very bad in places, didn't help either.

Felt like half stuff was missing, seem a lot must of been cut.

The ending was very predicable, I knew from the start, that was going to happen.

The last scenes was hilarious bad! , it was meant to be shocking but it was shocking, as it was so badly done, even made me laugh out loud.
