Scary!! The movie is about a girl who is able to communicate to a girl who used to live in the same house using an old wireless phone. Just when she thought she saved her from being killed by her stepmom, turns out she unleashed a monster.
I was loving the movie until that gas explosion scene and the story went downhill very very fast.
I’d blame this with the main protagonist who I thought was dumb. Everything that happened to her happened because she made too many stupid decisions.
And the while parallel universe logic was too simple and unbelievable. Everything changes in the future but its only physical. She never gets the memories from the past and that knowledge to help her win against the girl.
And that final twist at the end was too much. I almost didn’t see it because I thought the movie was over and wasn’t paying attention. I’d say they should have scrapped it.
