Good movie
19 May 2019 | by nouralwani-64579See all my reviews

I have read both bad and good reviews about this movie, and I have decided to side with the good reviews. Like any other movie, this one had many WTF parts, and scene where you're gonna want to pause and think "okay what?" BUT HOWEVER, the acting in this movie was absolutely outstanding, Alexandra, Taissa, Sebastian and Crispin did the roles absolute justice. One more thing, if you're here for the thriller/horror, don't bother. This movie is pure drama. It's thriller in the sense of "creepy" but otherwise it's just Drama. Loved the directing. LOVED the acting too.
