August 22, 2017
The movie is poised to punch a tension-filled ticket, but veers off into a heap of dimly explained gobbledegook about mad attempts to outwit death.

There's no question that the film's third act takes a decisive turn for the better.

A splurge of gruesome effects and cosmic mumbo-jumbo that neither makes sense nor provides anything approaching a real scare.

I just wish they had a better sense of narrative with this one - the gore is effective and voluminous, but the story it serves is reed-thin.
