My Thoughts

If what did I just watch? was a movie, this would be it. This movie surprised me by their villain choice and I was left with more questions than answers. This isn’t a jump heavy thriller by any means and was pretty straight forward by the dangers it presented. I will give points for originality in the threat presented but the character development was seriously lacking in this story. Minimal dialogue made this more of a “watch this scenario” film. Overall, this movie is a watch once kind of piece.
