It's not bad, it's just boring.
July 20, 2019
By devolving into unoriginal nonsense by the third act, the film is laid even lower by the fact that it actually had a lot going for it before completely falling apart.

Awful characters are key to several slapstick moments in this absurd thriller with too many plot holes. [Full review in Spanish].

I think it's meant to be hysterical. I hope so, anyway, because I laughed a lot.

Suspenseful, yet shallow - veering into torture porn territory.
