Rated: 3/5 May 5, 2021 Full Review Dennis Schwartz Dennis Schwartz Movie Reviews Has a good ambiguous premise but comes apart when it must reach a conclusion if its protagonist, Liz Dunn (Thora Birch), is a psychopath or a victim.

      Justin T The nature of this story changes more times than I could ever remember. It was not very scary and it wasn't very thrilling. The idea was pretty good but the characters are all so hateable that it becomes a challenge to watch at times. The horrificness of the characters is what makes it so interesting. It is a funny film that I enjoy watching but don't enjoy the memory. Not your typical horror - entertaining occasionally - it'll pass your time and be forgotten. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 03/06/24 Full Review colin m Disturbing tale that kept me involved until the end. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Manny P Within the first ten minutes, you've already had enough of the rich kid nonsense. At one point, it contrives to be an upper class version of a brat pack movie from the states. It safe to say the director is a fan of Lindsay Anderson, as this has "If" written all over it. Overly long and over acted. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 08/18/21 Full Review Audience Member Knightly made her debut in this low budget English thriller as Frankie but she was too over the top as well was her character and the other cast which got in the way. They laid on the peaches and plums queens English but the first third of this movie really didn't work. Critics made clear the film fell apart when the group came out of the bunker but actually this wasn't correct. The film improved and became more interesting with a twist. The ending was a let down slowly things unravelled to which was already predictable. The cast made a bit more effort to step up the performance in the last half an hour. Knightly meanwhile just merely cast to look pretty and flirt with two lads who looked creepy and odd throughout. There was supposed to be this eerie chilling feel to the movie but this didn't come off. Just a bit of a strange cheap teenage sort of film with upper class actors with no skills just with parents with acting backgrounds. Another overall weak display but because of the glimpses of skin we got to see from knightly this propelled her to instant future roles. Nicely does it lads. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 02/25/23 Full Review Audience Member Pandemic is making any movie good right now. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/17/23 Full Review Audience Member Harrington was really good. The story isn’t that good and there’s plot holes but the acting made it worth the watch. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/07/18 Full Review Read all reviews
