    This feels like a missed opportunity because I think there is potential here for a truly memorable thriller/horror movie. We have an Oscar winning actress being given the chance to chew up some scenery, an attractive supporting cast and a plot that feels reminiscent of a Stephen King suspense yarn. Sadly, what begins promisingly soon devolves into an increasingly unbelievable and borderline laughable series of scenes that almost feel like AIRPLANE!-esque satire. I was rolling my eyes rather than covering them as the film drew to its climax. And that's a shame, because I truly think this could have really been something special. The effects of childhood trauma and how they scar the victim years and even decades later is a potentially fascinating backbone for a psychological thriller. Spencer starts out strong, but even she falls under the weight of the pretension here. The filmmakers drop the ball and, by the end, it feels like they're only goal is to try out-SAWing SAW.

    This movie is so bad! 95% of the acting is terrible! I was excited for this one but let down!

    I liked the psychological drama/build-up, as well as the plot. You want to feel sorry for Ma, but she shouldn't have done what she had done. It was also nice to see Juliette Lewis in the movies again. I recommend seeing it.

    This movie had so much potential to actually be great The issue with this film is there isn't enough script, it's more just a complete focus on Octavia without actually giving her any stories And then the very end is absolutely terrible

    This is a great movie. It really makes you get into perspective what Matt is thinking I really enjoyed this film. Thank you to the producers and the actors you should watch this movie for sure!

    I'll start with negatives because there aren't many. I'd say the plot is relatively predictable, you piece most of the important parts together within the first 30 minutes of screen time. I'd also say it does go a bit too much into the gore, so if that's something that concerns you steer clear. But that's it. Everything else is good. The characters are very believable especially for high school characters, the plot, though predictable, is still interesting, the horror and creep element is still there (though a bit on the nose) and the acting is excellent. I'd say its definitely a decent horror movie, so its weird its ranked so low.

    The plot is a little thin, but it has some great tense moments that make it a decent enough film. Worth a watch.
