Would horror lovers enjoy this film?
This is one of those horror films that stay with you for weeks on end. The first time that we watched this film, we really liked it. But the longer that it went on, the more we realised that we were constantly thinking about this film as it played on our minds. Even the members of Eff Your Review that weren’t massively keen on the film, eventually couldn’t help but to give it a higher rating because of the effect that it had on them afterwards. The film uses paranoia within a family dynamic in order to create the intense suspense that is felt throughout. The story line itself is truly an ethical dilemma, that makes you think constantly about the situation. If you love horrors, then you should definitely check this film out. It is brilliant, but in it’s own unique way.
