“I put it on last night on my phone while in bed, the tags of Sci-Fi, Mystery and Horror giving me hope that it will be something mind-boggling and a bit scary that will keep me on my toes.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eI was wrong, though. The movie started out OK, but later on became quite predictable and around the middle or right before, I already had figured out the mystery and the second half of the movie was rather boring.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eIt doesnu0026#39;t help that at around 60% of the movie, I started falling asleep and left it to finish it the next day and it actually managed to feel even cheesier in some parts.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe acting was for the most part OK, except for the protagonistu0026#39;s daughter that seemed way too mentally and emotionally mature for her age to the point where I started questioning is this a Horror or a Comedy/Parody.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe rest of the movie was almost spot on, except that it was too predictable and not scary at all, if I started falling asleep while watching it alone in the dead of the night, it says how u0026quot;scaryu0026quot; it is.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eOverall, I donu0026#39;t regret watching it, but I couldu0026#39;ve definitely watched some better and more rewarding Sci-Fi Mystery that I was originally looking for.”
