The most frustrating film I have ever watched.
3 February 2019 | by addinoSee all my reviews

I actually enjoyed this film. Loads of tense moments and fun. But it so stupid. So many plot holes, so many stupid decisions. So many time you say to yourself "that just wouldn't happen"

Acting solid. Score good. Some good experimental shots from the director. Just the sheer frustrating stupidity takes what could be a great horror film into a bit of a mess.
