Slow, boring, weird. Almost all shot in the dark and can hardly understand the witch. My 15 year old fell asleep in this. Whoever wrote this shouldn’t get paid!

Surprised It’s really good!

I wanted to watch this for sometime and decided to rent it at a redbox with my husband. You need to pay attention the the movie to fully understand but it was wonderful, the only thing I would change is the ending slightly, but I won’t give spoilers! Only 1 scene had a sexual reference but it was subtile, 2 uses of the word he** back to back. Other that that good movie!
