A slow starter that is just on the edge of boredom so I thought, hell, people afe writing about the bus, so I waited until the bus and I must say, it turns into a horror.

boring and disappointing .

It has a raw message, it's intense and you will find this kind of disgusting for some scenes.

Intensely compelling!

Please for the love of God don't waste any time on this flabbergasting train wreck of a "movie".

First 20 minutes were boring.

Had unexpected twists and if you realized the subplot, your brain got excited af.

Let's just say it twists, it turns, it provides flashbacks and I found it utterly unpredictable which is at least something in its favor.

It was executed well, the acting was spot on, and right when I thought it was going to get cliche, or boring, or cheesy, it flipped the switch and again I was surprised.

After that it just becomes a terribly generic and contrived movie that just embarrasses itself at every turn with how poorly thought out it is.

It's on top 3 of the worst movies iv ever watched .

Movie is stylish, and very enjoyable to watch in terms of visual appeal.

Predictable and lazy .

Great message but predictable .

Had to write a review because people are giving it negative reviews and calling it a feminist propaganda movie.

Not Perfect, But Intriguing .

Papatza means something more than extremely stupid and boring.

The Perfection is well a perfect mind blowing rollercoaster.

I'm not sure if I liked this movie but I will say it's definitly worth watching because if anything it is fascinating.

Intriguing in almost a Hitchcock way, this is mystery, thriller and horror all wrapped up in one beautifully shot package.

I was hoping it would go in one direction and then went in another predictable and offensive direction.

There were a lot of unexpected twist which had me thinking what I'm I watching.

The storyline is disjointed, uninteresting, not believable not even for fun and with with total lack of suspense or any Other.

In 2019, especially in the horror genre and if you have been exposed to most psychological thrillers/horrors of the last 30+ years, most are predictable because there's only so much you can really do anymore in storytelling.

The movie is badly played, boring and has hardly any good scenes.

A few twists that are predictable and a few that are not.

I usually don't care for films about music or romance, but the infusion of these genres along with horror, which is my favorite genre, have combined to make a fascinating exercise.

Entertaining, but implausible and predictable .

The movie could have been camp gold, but is just boring trash.

Too sick, little too predictable, little too much trying to shock.

Oh how boring.

Sadly predictable....

The ending was a little cliche for me, they weren't very imaginative there.

This movie is enjoyable as just pure entertainment.

Okay so I put on this movie in the background while I was doing some work so it started out boring, cello players, parties and boring conversations.

Don't waste your time.

This is a terrible waste of time.

The "twists" were easily guessable and therefore just irritating given all the rest..The "gore" and "gross" factor that this title is billed and marketed is yawn-level.

The two leads were stunning and made for great actresses.

Don't waste your time.

An instant attraction develops between the 2 women and their journey defines the rest of this fascinating flick.

This movie was shallow, predictable, horribly written and just plain awful.

If you look at it like a B movie, it's entertaining in that respect.

This is a waste of film and the actors time.

Visually stunning, scream inducing .

Yes this one starts off slow once again...

Only that made me persevere through one of the most boring film's I've ever seen.

Pointless violence .

Entertaining .

Hands down (pun intended) the worst movie I ever saw .

An utter waste of time!

It's how the audience is brought to that conclusion that's intriguing.

I had to skip through scenes cause of how boring it was.

Most enjoyable horror movie since Get Out.

(slow clap with the standing ovation)!!!!

Not a blockbuster, but well done and entertaining, even for a couple early 60s.

I would think good storytelling is when multiple points can be approached within the same story, and not to mention that then if the trailer wasn't deceiving, then of course the film was predictable as most films then could be from just their trailers.

Great work, super happy and really enjoyed it.

A little bit frustrating to begin with as it does start of slow but once it starts, like REALLY starts it was captivating and has you on the edge of your seat.

I went in not expecting much and was bowled over by how good this is, an interesting plot that could be confusing were it not laid out so well.

Kept me on the edge of my seat and has an ending that doesn't disappoint!

More feminst propaganda from Netflix .

Very predictable.

But it was entertaining enough, and there were some surprises.

Some bizarre moments worth the watch and the "feminist rally against bad men" feeling is there too.

and has a nice twistAbsolutely worth watching it

Besides the bad plot, the acting is fine, the photo is fine, it's a quality picture just with a boring plot.

Very Entertaining .

Usually when it comes to Netflix originals I initially lower my expectations in hopes of a pleasant surprise in the form of an average and entertaining film.

The PREDICTABLE no where near perfection .

Don't waste your time.

Boring, gross, AWFUL dialog-no redeeming features whatsoever.

the writing predictable...

Predictable .

Predictable.

Welp, that was unexpected .

Each act of the movie takes a twist you don't expect, so the ending is pretty much unpredictable even though it's not original.

It's an interesting and intriguing concept that does work very well in the psychological horror genre.

The cinematography is at times breathtaking and the horror scenes are scream inducing, I was literally squirming in my seat and this is one of the few movies I've ever watched where I almost had to turn it off.

This was definitely one of the worst movies I've seen in years.

Others on here may be unsatisfied because the film is not what the trailers probably made you believe it was going to be, or that the film was too predictable and my response to those two points would be: if a trailer makes you believe and lures you in with one thing, and the film shows you something completely different, how is that such a bad thing?

There is no message or moral to this tale.

This is by far one of the most intense and compelling seductive and thrilling films I have seen in quite some time!

What's all the hype about I fell asleep halfway through this movie.

Nowadays, aside from being weighed down with leaden CGI and cheap jump scares, it seems they're always trying to have some sort of social commentary, or trying to be all artsy fartsy, which certainly seems to be the case in the opening stages of this misfiring film from director David Shepard.

Unfortunately it was a very short part of the movie because then it turned sour with an extremely predictable plot.

this is a must see, there is some blood and mild gore, but it's the story that makes this so entertaining.

But it certainly is intriguing if somewhat strange and far fetched.

Some crazy plot and story ideas sure but it's better than every other boring thriller / revenge movie out there.

I am bot aure what is the worst part, the story, the acting or the dragged out scenes.

While I have to say this was a bit predictable, that was mainly due to having seen hundreds of horror movies, including foreign ones.

From start to finish your mind has tricks played on it keeping you on the edge of your seat.

repetitive and needless use of the "f-word" mostly by female cast members and some excessively graphic, bloody, unexplained and violent injuries.

it did the bad parts, pretty well done bad that it was entertaining, & the good parts were well done.

Nothing supernatural, just the banality of human evil once again.

intense .

It could have had better writing but it was v entertaining.

The first half is some of the most intriguing cinema I have seen in a long time.

If you are a fan of suspenseful, intelligent thrillers this movie is for you!!!

I actually enjoyed it...

Crazy movie ; predictable until it's not!

An intriguing way, a "weird" way.

Twist and turns effectively, albeit some elements are fairly predictable.

I really enjoyed it.

Intense,...

One of the worst movies ever.

Those reviewers saying this is "propaganda" are the kind of people who can't take off their political hats long enough to enjoy a movie with a female-heavy cast.

Well, the problem here is not the crazy girls' revenge, or the dull plot twist - it's ironically the lack of perfectionism in each scene after the first 40min, the lazy and senseless dialogues, the messy storyline.

It's original, fun, different, gross, scary, sad, exciting.

Enjoyable .

First of all, I'm a guy and I really found most of the movie compelling.

Slow start and some wtf.

Really unique and edgy horror film with a few cool twists in it, and a gripping story.

This is a gripping film.

After reading some of the reviews I was excited to see what some called twisted and unexpected.

It is a pretentious attempt at a psychosexual thriller.

I was watching Netflix bored out of my mind and came across this peculiar and bizarre film.

Worth the watch.

More boring then the original which has a cult following because it's Argento.
