More questions than answers, unfortunately
I rarely write reviews on IMDB, but since there is so little info out there on this film, I decided to add my two cents. I feel like this film has great potential, much like an episode of Black Mirror. Unfortunately, there are far too many unanswered questions in this film.
Why are these assassinations taking place? Who is behind them? What happens when the process goes smoothly, considering we are only shown what happens when the process goes haywire? I could go on....
This movie feels unfinished (maybe it is?). The horror is there, the sci-fi is there, the creativity is there, it just needs someone to step in and tie it all together.
