!?!?!?!?
31 March 2018 | by timofthecrewSee all my reviews

On a technical level it feels like a sophomore student film. It's really not well shot in many scenes. But I'm going to say this movie was competently insane. I'd go on but I know that I couldn't put a review for this experience into actual words. 9/10.
