Writer’s Opinion

The storyline of the movie has been well written and really did a nice job of establishing a family circumstances and dynamics. The cast has been well selected and also their acting is excellent. All else felt authentic. But, the horror basics are under developed. Their dog attack scene really was not the Cujo caliber sequences. They did a really good job depicting their son’s evolution as the condition gets worse. The shock of this movie was more about dealing with the conditions over kill and actual attacks. The entire condition does feel relatable up to the final scenario, which could have been better however was fairly realistic as well.

“A mother will surely do anything for the benefit of her child.” This is pretty good…And it plays initially more of drama, but then will hit the deep end regarding being halfway through. The vision was almost spelling a story out if you’re giving attention. There’s a mid-credit scenario also to check out that the viewers will like. All in all, the movie was a decent one to watch for the thriller fans. And overall, it is a kind of above average addition of the horror genre that can be recommended to watch.
