“Sure, it does become dull at times but the overall story works especially when you consider the impact Covid has on how movies can be filmed. The main characters are written well enough that they help with the story. Finally, the film has some bloody moments which are indicated on the film’s poster but for those of you looking for a gory flick will be very disappointed.” Horror Society
