User Reviews

 
Not your average horror film.
30 June 2020 | by booboobob-13673See all my reviews

I will not spoil this film. I REFUSE to spoil this film. I had the distinct pleasure of seeing this at Nightmares Film Festival a couple of years ago and I haven't stopped talking about this film since. It's AMAZING.

The fact that so much fear can be produced with three characters and a dog just astounds me. And the filmmakers infused this UTTERLY horrifying film with a tenderness that throws you off-guard.

If you get a chance to catch this film, take that chance. You will never regret it.
