In general, the movie is not a terrible experience to watch. Maybe you do not care to view about it again, however, when you are in your perfect mood for the fun horror flick then, this will do just fine. This film will give you that similar feeling, when trying to beat the death with some good laughs and a good character. You know what is going to take place but still you are in suspense. This may not be the best terrifying movie of 2019; however, it is definitely enjoyable to view around during Halloween and it also deserves a better rating than what it had been given to this film. The movie is definitely flawed; however, it is not totally awful.

What is likeable in this movie is that it is very interesting and it has an original concept that sense strangely applicable to the recent society. It has decent acting too, which is surprisingly likeable and the main characters are intelligent, which is the kind of energizing in this genre. Although it is particularly scary, but, probably it is pretty creepy to somebody who scares easily and that is really a good thing! There are also no plot holes and inconsistencies that could be discovered here.
