Psychological thriller, but I did not like the ending at all ( can not say more because I do not want to make my review a spoiler ). Not only I did not like the ending ( what exactly happened), but also it raised a bunch of questions - what will happen after. Because of the ending - 3 stars, otherwise would give 4 at least - the actors play very well and the movie is atmospheric.
KathrineD down below called it a revenge drama and that describes the movie very well. A slow, bleak, broody revenge drama. Not your typical SHUDDER movie, but I really like it.
Wonderful , well played movie! Worth your time. I warn you it’s a slow burn so stay with it!
I little slow moving for my liking without even a good pay load. Personally, I would have written a mother/daughter torture session with the guy. Solid acting, sexy accents. Overall, I give this one a three out of five.
DrHeiter if you hate women so much no worries you could just fuck men.
