Trash
2 April 2015 | by See all my reviews

This was trash. I only watched the first night. I kept thinking this must get better. Nope. I should have given up on it improving. The message night one sends was that it is okay to have sex with married men.

I couldn't even figure out what the main plot of the movie was supposed to be about.

I also didn't understand the supernatural aspect. Where these just dreams or a guilty conscious.

I have not read the book. One review said the movie does not reflect the book. I would like to hear from others that have read the book. I would be tempted to give the book a try.
