Don't pay attention to the negative, shallow reviews and low score
23 October 2018 | by vegicatSee all my reviews

No idea why this was so poorly rated, because it's a good, solid, if sad, story. The acting was good, especially the lead. Perhaps they were expecting something like a shallow Hollywood thriller or horror flick. That's not this. This is a slow-burning, disturbing tale that kept my attention the entire time. Yes, it has some quirks in the cinematography and musical choices, but this is a very good dark family drama.

I consistently see a lot if Australian, UK, NZ, CA, etc. movies with ridiculously low scores and bad reviews, and all I can think of is the viewers must be middle Americans who only like American Hollywood, predictable, cookie-cutter movies.

That said, this is a sad, disturbing movie, so don't watch it if you are expecting something else.
