The start of the movie shows us the young girl pulling up outside her rental for the night, and by the start of this it immediately drew me in and it kept me watching throughout the duration.

As the film progressed through and became more unpredictable, with twists at every turn going. The story of the background from when the neighborhood was popular and filled with residents kept viewers intrigued as it followed a man to the store and back to the home and into the basement. This was a good background explanation to what happened horrifically in the home the film is focused on.

Usually I am rather critical of horror films, as I find most of them are predictable early on, and there seems to only be the odd few which captures my attention throughout. This film is one that gripped my attention from start to end, and I enjoyed it, I felt the writing and production of this film was perfect in the story being told. I felt my anxiety has been slightly heightened in certain scenes too, especially in scenes in the tunnel under the house.

The jump-scares were good, and very well done. It was a very disturbing film, and that is what I find to be a good horror, when it has an element of disturbing scenes and rather weird scenes that could make the viewer cringe – which happened with me.

Overall, a great film to sit down on an evening and watch with some popcorn, maybe even a pillow to hide behind if that really needs to be done.
