Good luck with that one, buddy.”
As mentioned earlier, at times it’s really exciting and the movie will scare the wits out of you. The story as a whole is a bit of a setback and farfetched. As I read somewhere on the Internet: “The script can basically be summed up as The babadook but dumb“. No complains about the acting though. The three main characters deliver a brilliant performance. Unfortunately, despite the original concept, they still used some predictable and weak options (such as a filing cabinet located in the basement with all the answers to hard questions being found). Sadly this feature film lacks the finesse of the short film. So, it isn’t really innovative. But it’s still entertaining enough.
