Is The Price Too High
5 February 2019 | by FoutainoflifeSee all my reviews

The mother of a girl in a coma with little chance of survival, makes the decision to enter into a high stakes pact in an attempt to save her daughter's life. This is the basic plot.

Let's start with the positives. This film has a polished look to it, simply meaning that it doesn't look like it was cheaply made. The story is decent and the actors did a great job in their roles.

The negatives. This script could've used some work. The terms of the pact are never really explained well and we never got a good indication as to who the sinister miracle worker is. I didn't really understand the spider aspect. I didn't understand why they were showing up or exactly what they were meant to signify. This was marketed as a horror film but it was more like a dark drama with some supernatural elements.

I didn't think this was an awful film but it could've been much better.
