Writer’s Opinion

The atmosphere was nice. The grieving mother was pretty good, but the story made up to the massive let down. The movie could have skipped the entire Helen crazy woman’s tale. This kind of is a type that the ending is not being taken care so well. It will show with how the characters portray their acting. The movie is a very familiar move because of the overused theme, grief! If the movie makers can somehow get about that…then, it may possibly an enjoyable one.

It is beautifully filmed although weird in some sense, and the acting had been quiet solid. It is atmospheric and not particularly frightening. It is not a fast pace film, and none noticeable filler. It is still recommended to watch for some reason. It can be paired with movies that have contrast and comparison.
