From the outset there was more attention to scenery and continuity than a normal horror so I felt I could safely withstand the scary bits.

This isn’t one with loads of gore or a burgeoning body count rather a few scares and some mysterious, spooky, hide-behind-the-couch circumstances. The production is really good and the cast perform their weird, not-sure-if-they’re-victim-or-baddie dances with a great deal of presence.

I thought it was an intriguing horror and one that has a lot of nice depths. Would watch it again as well, even though I know what’s going on.

Snog, Marry, Avoid?
