Trivia

In Buddhism, Mara is the name of a demon that tries to sway Prince Siddhartha (Gautama Buddha) from the path of enlightenment by sending (some say they went of their own will) his daughters to seduce him. (They failed.) See more »

Goofs

The film conflates Helena's guilt in the murder with her potential insanity. A psychologist would not be called to a crime scene to make a decision then and there as to whether a murder suspect should be committed to an asylum. Police would handcuff and process any suspect regardless of potential mental illness or insanity defense, and that person would go through court hearings to determine fitness to stand trial. In the case of severe mental illness, a sentence would be served at a mental health facility rather than a jail--the person would not simply bypass court and be committed. Kate repeatedly expresses guilt that she has separated a mother and daughter, yet had she not decided on the asylum Helena would certainly still have been jailed to await trial for the murder.

Great Acting By Olga Kurylenko & Boring Storyline
23 September 2018 | by ymyusedaSee all my reviews

Rating 4.9/10 First of all, i want to give credit to Olga Kurylenko because have done a good job in this movie as criminal psychologist Kate Fuller, who investigates the murder of a man and is haunted by demon who kills people in their sleep. Unfortunately, the storyline in this movie is too slow and boring. This film can make you fall asleep in the cinema. So Disappointed .
