It wasn't really that bad at all. Its a long movie and shows more of its drama/thriller side than horror if you ask me, but if you like a good ride, its worth it.
Good acting, interesting story, more sad than scary.
Foreign movies are getting so much better than the US dumb slashers. Awesome movie! I was really rooting for Nok. She was treated like crap even from home. What would you do?
It's a drama powered by a supernatural element, but Dearest Sister is still a well-executed tale of greed and betrayal.
