good psychological movie with a slow burn, however i would NOT consider it a horror movie. maybe more of a thriller?

Well Done. Kept me interested the whole way through even though it's a slow burner.

I actually really enjoyed this film. It had a realness and a darkness to it that pulled me in. It’s not a horror movie for some but for me the true horror is within human nature, and this certainly was scary in that aspect. The supernatural element was beautifully done. It was a great film from this platform honestly.

It was alright but I had a hard time paying attention to some parts and if you’re not paying attention to a subtitled film you miss quite a bit. So I try to rate the films I watch on here but honestly I feel more like I didn’t truly watch this and this doesn’t count lol. So just ignore this and pretend I didn’t rate it.
