The acting was decent, but the overall production was uninspiring. More appropriate of a short story rather than a movie.
Intriguing theme, but I feel I've seen it done better...
I wasn't expecting that. Not horror but very good.
I am a big Aaron Taylor Johnson fan, this is one of my favorites of his. Its not horror but it can really mess with you if you are not in the best mindset
