I wish I could score this less than 1 star
22 December 2019 | by michaelely-01627See all my reviews

This movie reminds me of that scene from Jurassic Park where Jeff Goldblum says "You were so preoccupied with whether or not you could, you never bothered to ask if you should." This was hands down the most disturbingly awful movie I have ever seen. Whoever greenlit this should never be in charge of the light ever again. How dare they do this to me?!? Please don't go see this movie. And if you do, may God have mercy on your soul.
