I just couldn't get into it, the main trio were insufferable. The only character with any integrity and likability received less than 5 minutes of screen time. I appreciated the story as it unraveled, similar to Burning + Parasite.

Not necessarily a traditional horror, more of a drama with a slight supernatural undertone. A good film though with good acting & some nice building of tension through character relationships. I enjoyed it, but probably wouldn’t watch it again.
