Don't expect a horror film out of it
25 October 2018 | by mrplaythemallSee all my reviews

It's very Peter Pan-esque mixed with a darker, mature tone. It's not the typical jump-scare type of horror film but instead tries to make you feel uncomfortable and tense, which I like. Can it get a bit boring at times? Yes. You're gonna have to buckle down with the story and enjoy the decent acting, especially by Will McDonald's character, Zac. Mesmerizing from the start, he completely sells you on the idea of how psychotic and deranged his character is. And when his acting does fall flat it's because of the sub-par script. The editing could've been better, too. Having seen a set photo of Zac's make up I at no point saw that in the movie because of how terribly lit the film was (a cheap tool to get out of extensive post-editing). Overall, it's a standard thriller film that tries to disgust and creep you out, but doesn't quite hit it's marks. Will's performance and some parts of the film are the only reason I could think of to convince anyone to watch it.
