No horror. Bad script. Horrible execution.
24 September 2017 | by gothic-fictionSee all my reviews

3 stars here! Watch the movie and figure it out yourself, that is if you can last all the way through. I watched it with 2 friends, all of us begging for the movie to hit its climax and finish.

And that was a mistake right there. Because when it does so, it goes full on gore, jumping from history lessons about the war to lets cut some organs, eat some flesh and be as disgusting as possible. The movie focuses on two time periods, both equally boring and gross when the time comes. I have no idea how this got into production but if it will go without people noticing it, I won't act surprised.

Sorry but they failed here. Bad! Really bad ghost story, mostly about vengeance, told in the worst possible way. I won't recommend it. Stay away.

Cheers!
