Goofs

The water in the shower becomes cold because the water heater has been turned off. The water heater is turned back on, and the shower has warm water again. That is not how a water heater works. It holds a full tank of hot water that can be used. Later, it will take a long while before another tank of water can be heated. See more »

Never been so angry or disappointed in a film...EVER
20 January 2018 | by ali-bubble-hot-hotSee all my reviews

I completely jinxed this movie by saying how good it was halfway through.

I've seen some pretty horrendous horror films in my lifetime, but you expect them to be horrendous because they are what they say on the tin. Cheap and easy.

This film is the opposite, it's deceptive and not in a "ahhh wasn't expecting that" sort of way. More a feeling of being completely ripped off and dissatisfied kinda way. We honestly really enjoyed a good majority of this film, so many things that look like they're building up to a really good twist at the end. Mysterious characters, red herrings, things that could be linked together in a really cool way.

How naive and utterly wrong we were.

There is no point to this film. Literally, why was this film made? It's like they employed a really good writer for the first half of the film who put together a brilliant structure and then some idiot decided to take over and realised he/she was in over their head. By the last shot I was honestly screaming "DO NOT ROLL CREDITS" and my sister had to restrain me when the goddam screen went black.

This review may seem extra, but I have never been so angry, frustrated and disappointed by a potentially great film.

I urge you not to waste your time.

I have to go cool off and try and forget the fact I ever watched this piece of rubbish.
