Writer’s Notion

The start of the movie was kinda good. But then suddenly, it turned into a relationship drama with the roaches. You may still not know what is with an evil’s phone or a hole thingy and with the roaches. It is just known why the film is entitled “Wounds”, because you will have a brain damage while watching it. There are times that the dialogues are bad, but the acting is a bit better, and it is not really that scary. Maybe for some people who do not like the roaches and it is really not a body horror, it is not mind-bending, and there were no demons, supernatural entity, ghosts and no reality or dream confusion.
