I really enjoyed this movie and found the premise very intriguing. The overall atmosphere and dread really added a lot. Decent scares with an open ending with no definite conclusion for the main character. Definitely worth a watch though.

Meh! The movie had potential but it just never made it to that next level. I think if you’re not familiar with Jewish stuff you’ll miss a lot of the subtler context of the movie. For me, watching this movie was like waiting for the drop of an EDM tune that never came.

Such a creepy film. It took a turn I didn’t expect it to go and it was very effective.
