This is one of my favorite movies of all time! ❤️
This has been on my list for quite some time now and I've heard plenty of people say good things about it. This movie is well deserved of the praise it receives. It pulls you in so many different directions, but still manages to tell a great story that is still decent (not necessarily easy though!) to follow. I would definitely like to watch this one again!
I loved this a lot actually, intentionally misleading and really good twist.
I liked this one, I’d say it’s more a psychological thriller than horror but it was done well. Keeps you guessing up until the end. Give it a watch, it’s worth it!
Absolutely fantastic. Messing with us right from the opening scene.
