This was so boring. Why is this movie even on Shudder?
Sad story. Truly a horrifying experience if it happened to you. Wish it was a little more exciting.
it was alright, not amazing.
Interesting take on the “revenge” sub-genre. I can sort of see why some might have wanted more closure, but what we got was sufficient, imo. Definitely has some creepiness to it, especially with how callous the women were in regards to the whole ordeal, but in the end, the villain got what he deserved.
So slow and more Lifetime style chick thriller than anything approximating a horror film. Why is this even here?
