User Reviews

 
Concept is cool, but the ideas are all over
30 October 2018 | by dallasryanSee all my reviews

The first 20 minutes of this film are amazing, eerie and keep you on the edge of your seat. Then the rest of the film falls flat from there. Some cool concepts but they're muddled all over the place and in the end, it's a one dimensional film that had so much promise but never delivered.

Worth watching the first 20 minutes.
