Viewing Notes

Cool indie flick that would be right at home at Groovy Fest or Stanley. It has that “feel” to it. I probably would’ve have given this a higher score if the ending would have came together better. I love Jocelin Donahue so, so much and she’s truly in her element as a scream queen here. Just wish the story was a bit tighter towards the end… basically dumb character choices to keep the plot moving. But I totally recommend for a VOD / eventually streaming watch.
