Goofs

When speaking with her roommate in the dorm room, Zoey pronounces Leonhard Euler's surname as "YOU-ler" rather than "OY-ler", a name any physicist or mathematician or student of those fields would know very well. See more »

User Reviews

 
To my surprise, I enjoyed this movie!
6 January 2019 | by valtierraitzaSee all my reviews

Went in without watching trailers or reading any background info on it. My friends really wanted to see so I tagged along. With horror movies, I never get my hopes up as it's hard to find a good one these days. I surprisingly really enjoyed the concept of this movie and would consider it more of a thriller. It never bored me and it wasn't gory like the saw films (which I never enjoyed). I liked the characters and their backgrounds.. it was nice to see how they all tied in together. It was a pretty good movie and I'd recommend.
