Dark, Disturbing....Hilarious
7 October 2017 | by See all my reviews

I really do not want to give away any important plot points to the movie. Getting into anything specific would spoil a fun element of surprise, so I have to stay vague.

All the actors nailed their parts. It transcends into many different genres. You will laugh at times, feel queasy at others, but it all wraps up nicely in the end.

It is a lot of fun. I was a big fan of both these kid actors when they co-starred in M Night's "The Visit." The actor who played Luke did a great job as well.

A fun, quick ride. 8/10
