Left you with not knowing what was going to happen, from beginning to end.............and even after!!
Definitely interesting and just overall sad.
Really enjoyed it. Reminded me a bit of a Dark Song in the sense of ambiguity towards what we're actually dealing with. Is it all psychological, or supernatural, or both? Gives you a chance to really focus on the trauma that the characters are wrestling with. Great watch.
well there’s 1 1/2hrs I won’t get back
Made no sense. Disjointed at best. Dull at worst. Not one I'll watch again, not even to try to make sense of it all.
