This is a fast-paced psychological thriller/horror that had me gripped! The story begins with the the death of Eve, following an operation to remove her kidney…..what follows is a story of terror, with many twists and turns, murder, mutilation and other gruesome discoveries!
The story reminded me of a cross between various horror movies…..including Saw! It’s quite gruesome in places, and there are many points where I was shouting ‘don’t do that’!! at the characters…….like, WHY do they run upstairs?! Why get out of the car? All the classic things that you WOULDN’T do in real life (well I hope not anyway!!). There are also A LOT of people that seem to know things that are important and could help…..but why won’t they share them?
The story alternates between past and present….and a number of different stories of couples/groups that are in the worst situations BUT it all ties together in the end…..an end that I completely didn’t expect!!!
If you love a good psychological thriller and a bit of horror, then this is definitely worth checking out! I’d love to see this as a horror movie!!!
