Take your pills and watch it, cause it's a good time
20 November 2017 | by andremigueisSee all my reviews

So, i have to say it was suspenseful, intriguing, dramatic, thrilling and in a way horrifically ironic. You will understand what i mean, when the end is near. This is a tight film. You won't find yourself looking at your phone, ever. Hence, I highly recommend it. It's a great prequel, about the inhumane way the medical practice dealt with the mentally ill in the past, and this is truly shown in this short movie. it's an insane journey, inside of the institute, a Gothic thriller with a lot of chills. it's very well directed, i want to encourage you to watch it, if you're in two minds, you won't be disappointed.
