Enjoyable

I think this movie was quite good it plays with a wide variety of your emotions. From scary to tear jerkingly sad there's a lot that I could say about this movie. But overall I enjoyed the emotional rollercoaster that this movie took me on, and I would definitely reccomend watching it.

Ay that's pretty good

I'm not one for horror movies but I will watch them I've never been a big fan of horror but when this one was recommended to me on Netflix I just had to try it out because I love a lot of gruesome stuff and it looked pretty good and I liked it for the most part but some parts were just meh.
