Goofs

In amputating Augie's arm, they would have severed the brachial artery and without surgical intervention, he would have died within minutes.

The brachial artery is the major blood vessel of the (upper) arm. It is the continuation of the axillary artery beyond the lower margin of teres major muscle and carries a great deal of blood. See more »

User Reviews

The actors are good but story line, plot, most of dialogue and pacing are horrible
22 October 2019 | by random-70778See all my reviews

The first 2/3 of this film are very slow paced, interminable burden on the viewer. The last 1/3 is a series of predictable jump scares and tropes. They are shallow and silly, but I guess the point of the first 2/3 is to put you in such a torpor that you fall for the jump scares.

The acting is not bad at all. But over all this just fails on several core levels due to script pacing and hamfisted directing.
