A weird but awesome ride
20 August 2019 | by ferrat-48945See all my reviews

The movie starts like a serious/tipycal horror movie but at is progresses it explores so much sub-genres going from something really gory to something really resembling Army Of Darkness, really looking forward for a sequel.
