Sufficiently creepy and surprisingly brilliant to boot. A real tragedy, but in my opinion of the self-made kind. Very relatable.
Not a good movie, the mother irritated me, but the ending wasn't bad.
This is less scary than stuff like Ringu, but it's still an excellent creepy movie, with an emotional mother-daughter story. Even when Mom overreacts a little much >=>
A felt like this movie was just a big PSA, which in this case, is a good thing. The atmosphere was really creepy, but I think it had very little pay-off, however. Definitely not the scariest movie I’ve seen, but that’s okay. I don’t need to have my blood curdle to feel afraid. This movie did its job and I think the concept was nice 👌🏻👌🏻
