      robert p I made the mistake of watching this movie, frankly, I would not recommend this movie to anyone. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review adam b God awful and terribly boring. I thought the initial idea of a futuristic setting with Afro-Caribbean magic/spirituality would be cool, but it was handled like a Lifetime film. Everything looked ridiculous, no emotional impact whatsoever, it was a waste of time Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Incredible story telling and incorporation of old and future magic.

      Carolyn Mauricette Rue Morgue Magazine You might think the film speaks only to a specific audience and is a cultural signifier for those of Caribbean descent in Toronto, but this story is accessible to everyone for its lesson in courage and sacrifice.
