Absolute horrible
24 January 2020 | by asosa-26598See all my reviews

I went to see this movie with very low expectations since horror films usually dont do well in January, like the grudge. And, of course, it didnt surprise me how horrible this movie is. The first 15 mins was ok, but after that this film went nowhere and the ending somehow ended abruptly in my opinion. Dont waste your money. If you really want to see it, wait till it comes out on redbox. But be warned, you will be bored of this film. Its not even scary. Safe to say, i wont be watching this movie any time soon.
