Reviews:

“Like The Gallows, this bows out with a downbeat twist, but it’s too little too late for a mostly lazy sequel. If you want a movie about an insecure teen vlogger, go and watch Bo Burnham’s wonderful Eighth Grade instead. Guaranteed: 100% less jump scares, 100% more genuine dread and no hanging scenes.” Horrorscreams Videovault
