It is good but man, it is too long
18 November 2020 | by EasternZZSee all my reviews

This movie could had been cut down to maybe 1.45 - 2 hours and it would had still worked. This movie is a little over 2.30 hours and it kinda drags a bit. Also the special effects are kinda bad, (minor spoiler) the dead bodies look very fake, like something out of a Halloween shop.

It does have it own eerie weird thing going on, but I feel that the story is so long people will lose interest after the 90 minute mark.

7/10
