OK, now this is more like it! Check out the link below to read a more balanced, intelligent review (not to mention, a review that doesn’t sound like broken English). However, the reviewer states that the main demographic for the film will be “teenage girls”. I know plenty of grown men planning to see it (and who have wanted to see it for months), and women over 21, not so much high school girls. Horror fans of all ages, male and female, know that less gore can equal INTENSE fear. The reviewer compares the film briefly to J-horror as far as the “less is more” school of scary, atmospheric terror.
I can almost guarantee you that even though I will KNOW the jump scare scene –actually, the moment (probably you know the one I refer to) is not just a jump scare scene, it’s more of a FUCKING JUMP SCARE SCENE –shown in the featured image, the short film, and in the trailer’s stinger (on almost every TV spot, by the way) is coming, and I’ll see it coming, too, I will scream in complete panic at the top of my lungs when it comes. I might not be the only one in the theater, either…
