Goofs

The poster design is nonsensical. It features a man, looking down at a beautiful woman, whom is in a water, yet what he doesn't see is that she is actually a monster and has reddened the water below her with the blood of her victims and additionally a mountain of their skulls. This was thought to be a clever way to indicate to us, the audience, that this poster is meaningful; Yet how was the man unable to see what's in the water, considering the fact that he was looking directly into it, doesn't make any sense.

The movie is good, but they kinda overdone it a bit.
9 December 2018 | by Aktham_TashtushSee all my reviews

I don't know if it's the scares themselves or because i watched it dubbed and not in Russian ,, but it kinda felt overdone ,, A lot of scares ,, i mean the graphics and cinematography are good but there were so many jumpy moments by the end of the movie the scares felt like just any other normal scene.

The plot is semi-genuine, somewhat familiar,, the casting as of the Russian cast looked fine , but as i said sadly all the engagement and interaction thrill factors are lost when you watch it dubbed to English.

So i would say it's not highly recommended, especially not in English.
