Would anyone like to discuss this movie?


I really liked it. I thought the acting of both the main characters was amazing and the story was truly unique. I still found myself surprised at the end and it was very thought provoking. I'd like to hear some other reactions and especially thoughts about the ending.

I liked it very much even though it was creepy. The surprise ending was great.

I loved the creepy/suspense aspect. I was very worried that she and the daughter were never leaving that shelter. I did feel like maybe I wanted a little more at the end (not meaning it felt incomplete or confusing). I just would have liked to know more about what exactly happened and if/how they survived it and who else did. 


I thought it was a very emotional movie for sure. And I was thinking about it for hours after it ended. Thanks for your reply. :)
