Definitely worth watching! Good acting & unpredictable
18 January 2017 | by JustSarahBSee all my reviews

I was pleasantly surprised by how much I liked this movies. The acting was very good. The story was actually rather unique with twists and turns I did not anticipate, and I certainly did not expect the ending to play out like it did, not at all. I gave it 8 stars for several reasons, originality, creepiness, some jump scares, more than decent acting, definitely worth a watch. I noticed after one a the main characters is fromStar Trek, lol. More than once I thought I'd figured it all out but I hadn't, and it the time passed quickly enough that I didn't even notice it. The ending impressed me even more, I did not expect it st all and it made me think about it, even if only for a few brief moments.
