It is the second film of the director after the movie ‘HONEYMOON’. The direction for a horror movie is quite fine and good points for the efforts. Although, some scenes shot in dark needed more lightning but thriller scenes were quite impressive.
All the cast throughout the movie was good. Kiana and Olivia as Deena and Sam were main focus of the camera and has done their role efficiently. Jordyn as Ruby Lane aka one of the ghost was wonderful in her role. She was scary as well as attractive in the role.
