This film will fuck you up for the rest of your life.
Unforgettable. Stays with you days later . Classic
This film is full of ups and down. For example the great acting is brought down by the poor pacing. The great writing is brought down by horrible character writing. Good scares at the end are brought down by bad jump scares at the beginning. Overall I'd recommend it to people who enjoy more disgusting, gross films that makes you want to throw up. Overall it's a good movie brought down by some bad scenes. 7/10
Pretty intense, but if you can get through it; wow what a movie.
Too bad it’s not available in my country... 😞
