age 14+

Good storyline with unexpected surprises and a tough mysterious case.

The illustration of the 90s horror / slasher illustration with some 90s teen vibes and how big problem came after mistaking someone's death. Revenge is the word to haunt these teens and they had to survive through this mystery. Not much violence was seen, but illustrating more 90s teen vibes than a cold murder case.

I saw it when I was 12 and it freaked me out.

I saw it when I was 12 and it freaked me out but I rewatched it a few months later and I loved it.
