    Don't bother

    I really didn't feel anything. There was minimal character development and a lack of storytelling. It's definitely not a horror. It would have been useful to learn more about Maud, what happened in the hospital, how she came to be what we see on the screen - basically, we needed to know her backstory.

    It's not really a review but my attempt to explain how I interpreted the movie to those who complain that the film is overrated, especially if the reason is that they didn't like the second half of it.

    It's much easier to understand the message of a movie when the 'good guys' win or the 'bad guys' get punished in the end. I'm not saying that…
