Goofs

At around 29 minutes when Rial is getting her blood drawn, the woman drawing her blood fills a purple top tube while the yellow top is clearly shown to be empty. When drawing blood, however, the purple top (EDTA) tube is always drawn last after all other tubes to avoid cross contamination of tube additives. See more »

Nice surprise
31 October 2020 | by med-01081See all my reviews

Decided to watch this film on Halloween as pretty much watched all the classics over the October month and i found this little gem very refreshing. Netflix has been disappointing this halloween with the terrible blyth manor but they pulled it back with this one. A horror story with heart that makes you feel lucky for the life you have. It tells the story of two asylum seekers and the struggles they face to settle in a new country BUT something has come along with them!! The story flows nicely, the acting is a decent effort and there are some very good jump scares. Some of the dream scenes are beautifully shot and kind of reminded me a bit of the scenes in The Ritual. Its not all horror but that shouldn't stop you giving this one a go.
