Waste of time.

The story is a slow burn that keeps it moving at a good pace, and they mystery all comes together at the end, definitely would recommend.

Boring first part, interesting second part.

Strange and Slow .

Was good enough to watch great twist at the end enjoyed it

Slow Burn, Watchable, Yes, Re-watchable, No .

Great cast, great acting, suspenseful plot twist = great movie.

Has some unexpected twists, thats always a good thing.

It's worth watching.

But it turns out to be a thriller, and that's due to a more exciting last half hour.

What an engaging plot .

Good story but too slow .

Hence, the intriguing premise does not and can not work.

The plot is mysterious to start with, and then becomes very engaging and captivating.

Yet too damn slow.

You need to pay attention, because the ideas presented by the other characters, and how they think she became pregnant can seem a bit confusing.

The pacing started out decent, then slowed down midway, and felt dragged out towards the end, that the 96 min run-time felt longer.

Then things become more crime drama with an unexpected villain.

1 hour 40 minutes of their day to dealings that bore you to tears, then literally 30 seconds to show you how they ll entangle and still no real twist.

Besides the somewhat predictable narrative, the chemistry and acting performance were laughable.

Engaging mystery turns into thrill-less thriller.

The death of the older lady - seemed rather pointless.

More and more are reveiled as the movie progresses, like a good thriller - but this one is rather unpredictable and keeps your mind on edge to figure out whether «it was the butler?

A waste of time, that is all.

Good ,enjoyable movie with a great twist.

For a low-budget B-grade film by unseasoned filmmakers, this was a surprisingly enjoyable noir-thriller about grief, belief and the things we keep hidden.

And then that all goes away, and it's one contrived, cliched confrontation after another.

After one hour I still thought it was just a drama, as the story was pretty slow and not really going anywhere.

It did draw some of my attention but pace too slow until the last 20 minutes, thing turns interesting.

It's a kinda slow paced movie when in the start it brings a lot of questions and then explains all of them at the end.

This worst titled movie ever starts with a well-crafted, unpredictable mystery with just enough hints dropped to completely engage the audience and keep them guessing.

It's one of those slow burners that requires your full attention to prevent you falling asleep.

An enjoyable noir-thriller about grief, belief and the things we keep hidden .
