Lets just start with me saying i loved this movie. It’s got a hell of a motive and good acting. Good innovation and it followed rules. Good opening and great ending. Also quite creepy. All that said it can be a little long and slow in parts and boob shots would have been inappropriate.

We highly recommend this movie! Tara gave it a 70/100 and I an 83/100.

spoilers ahead…….


The men are so evil, they chase him down with dogs and the girl isn’t even seriously hurt and of course he is not responsible anyway.
