    "This film is different from other horror films that I have watched. Unlike those typical horror movies that have a ghost, this film had none but the character of James was the thing that scares me. He is so unpredictable. And when he got his check up to his doctor, I am soooo chilling and scared of what will he do, will he kill her or what! Amazing film."

    "I am very horrified by every scene in this film. Most of the scenes are somewhat sensitive to watch because it's kinda gross but that is what makes the movie a realistic one. "

    "Moving and shocking scenes startled me sooo much. Though it is a film that seems like they have a limited budget, still, they were able to pull off the film."
