It's not saying that this is a horrible movie, but all these 10 stars reviews hailing it as "brilliant" and "perfect" are obviously fake.
First off, it's not funny at all. There is zero comedy. This is a low-key, cheesy horror movie with only a few scares. I guess that qualifies it as a thriller, but barely. The acting and cinematography are alright, but really nothing special. The story however is it's high and low points at the same time. While there is some originality here, it boils down to a confusing, convoluted mess in the final act. The suspense never hits any high octane levels of intensity and as original as it is, it's still kinda predictable.
I applaud them for trying something a little different, but ultimately it's a watered-down horror movie with a decent plot that is fairly forgettable. 5/10
