5/10 - I might have liked this more if half the film wasn't just a delusion. Shrooms again.

I enjoyed this one and could watch it again. I thought the acting was great. Visually impressive especially on some of the wilder delusions. Shame they couldn't just leave the bad guy dead.

Entertaining old school slasher, making good use of a limited number of locations, and uses the paranoia of the central character well. There are plenty of tense, suspenseful scenes and some satisfying levels of gore. Vanessa Grasse does well in the lead role, and

Can't imagine why anyone who likes horror movies would hate this, nor can I see anyone who has watched a lot of horror moves would love it. It's just another slasher, nicely photographed, professionally staged and well acted but nothing new

5/10. A solidly run of the mill slasher that I quite enjoyed for the first two thirds, where there were possibilities to take it in a more interesting direction. It goes downhill fast in the final third
