Defintely not your run-of-the-mill thriller
27 May 2019 | by EpimetheusA1See all my reviews

This film changes at least twice. The first twist will catch you off guard, for sure. Luckily I went in without knowing anything about this film. It's different than most films and the story is a bit addicting, albeit nonsensical. This is a thriller to have fun with but defintely not to be taken seriously. Don't expect some groundbreaking plot line or characterization but know that there are plenty of twists and turns to keep you hooked until the end. And if you don't focus too much on it's ridiculous storyline, the film is actually quite fun.

It does get gruesome at parts. Don't say you haven't been warned.
