The movie is pretty good. The fact that Miles Robbins is in the movie is pretty cool since his dad Tim Robbins (Jacob's Ladder, Shawshank Redemption....etc.) was in a similar movie. Tim Robbins was going through insanity in Jacob's Ladder like Miles is in this movie. Also Daniel is played by Arnold Swarzenegger's son Patrick Swarzenegger.. But I have to say the movie was not scary at all. It wasn't suspenseful at all. It was just decently good. Watch if mental insanity is your thing.

It was an ok film I actually enjoyed it and liked it for the most part besides the cringey parts but it doesn't deserve 4 stars

I was expecting a bit more, but I was not disappointed. The director knows what he is doing
