A unique and charmie indie with a surprising bend
26 January 2021 | by mtsound-17105See all my reviews

Great unique indie with a strong performance at the center. The blending of a dark story with it's gimmicky take on a cheesy 80s training video works surprisingly well thanks to smart direction and a strong script. It definitely could have went off the rails and might be divisive for some, but for the right audience it's a real treat.
