Can you hear me? Dad, can you hear me?
[nodding a weary yes]
You don't need to fight it. You can just let it all go. Everything's okay.

this script must have been written with a mouse button keyboard.a thin bleak story with no horror and bundles of scenes spinning out nowhere.why-what-where and when,we are all untold. the film has no answer to no questions, and ends with an end,a dead end by the way.the directors should take a look back to the 80's and learn the genre.so i am sorry,i will give 0 stars to this movie
