Writer’s Observation

This movie is one old style horror film that concentrates more on the psych part than on the cheap visuals of scaring the viewer. The setting is just amazing, the actors played the role well and the cinematography is excellent. The director is aware of how to make the viewers to feel uneasy. Of course it’s not perfect however, but it’s over average for the Netflix standards.

If you’re someone who adored horror movies and want a thing different than those modern ones, then just give it an attempt to watch and sure you will not regret it. Please take note that it’s a gradual burn horror movie with some pleasant kills…!!!!

It is actually a real good movie and Veronica can be considered as one superior movie, but it’s how you create a prequel. Completely diverse on its approach, and has an importance on the initial story, yet it is much of its own thing.
