Amazing movie. Amazing acting. So many reviews say this was not a horror movie. But they are so wrong. It was horror at its best. True life horror. This was so frightening. The fear of reality at its darkest deep secrets. I loved this movie. It shows human cruelty That’s horror in my opinion.

While this movie is clearly not a horror movie, it does accurately display the stigma behind the horror genre as a whole. I personally really enjoyed it.
