Dennis and Rita arrive home to a series of mysterious events.

Ho boy…this one started off decent and then completely spiraled into awfulness after the second act.

Here's the few things I liked: the opening plot was great and really hooked me. The film sets an eerie atmosphere and pulls you in with some intrigue. The couple (Rita and Dennis) are decent actors and felt believable. Once we are introduced to Nate, this is where the film lost me.


I don't want to write page after page of the film's cons so I'll make a list of the things I did not like about this movie:

-Nate's acting was not very good. It felt stilted and hammy.
-the actions taken by Rita and Dennis () were unbelievable and took me out of the moment.
-the movie in an attempt to make the movie's story interesting. It does not and ruins the pacing of the first act.
-the plot proceeds to start which starts to become confusing and it felt like I was watching two different movies.
-the movie proceeds to give Nate his own backstory which is unnecessary and makes the plot more convoluted
-the entire tone of the film is confusing and inconsistent like it didn't know what it wanted to be: horror? thriller? drama? What?? There is a montage of which COMPLETELY comes out of left field.
-finally, we end with ….


This is a classic example of a bad film which starts out good for the first 15-20 minutes and then hilariously falls apart. Confusing story editing, inconsistent tones and a seemingly unfinished ending which makes this movie just…bad. I would skip this one.
