A nice story that warms the cockles
25 February 2017 | by Horror_UKSee all my reviews

As a horror fan, this is not the film I would normally watch, but I did find myself watching it and found it very different than I would have expected.

While it may have taken a little longer than expected to get started, I found that this was done on purpose as it had an arc that brought the audience along at a specific pace, and that pace worked. You had to understand these characters and you did.

Why did this film work? It's very simple.

I believe there are two things that you need in any film, whatever the budget, and if you have this then you have a film that the viewers will enjoy:

1. A Good Script 2. Good acting

This film had both of these and not just good, but great. The script worked well and both principal actors did a fantastic job.

It's a great film if you like a feel-good story, but don't want all the mush.
