A lot of grass, and screaming.
5 October 2019 | by skamt-mlSee all my reviews

So this was a utter disappointment. It kinda starts out interesting, for the first 5 or 10 minutes or so. And then the screaming starts. And then the shots of the grass starts. There's so much annoying footage of the goddamn grass and I kept asking myself why is this so important to the plot? I cried inside and begged to the gods, please stop this screaming and yelling and stop feeding me all this grass. By now you might ask yourself why I just didn't turn it of? I don't know, it became about prestige I guess. To sum it up, it reminded me so much of all the pointless and bad Stephen King adaptions from the 90s. Trust me I'm a big genre fan and this is just a waste of your time.
