    ★★★

    A heartwarming, if familiar, coming-of-age drama with an unusual setting and some horror elements. Quite a departure from the nightmarish and surreal quality of Can Evrenol’s other films. This one is a pure family friendly fun and I knew what's going to happen after the first 15 minutes due to the familiar story narrative. Despite that it’s a very wholesome film featuring great performances all around. The dystopian setting is nice to look at it makes up for the blandness of the script and the occasional nightmare sequences effectively enhance its familiar story.

It's like taking a good short film and stretch it out needlessly. The experience of going through 'spooky' internet videos and playing it constantly evoke a good sense of discomfort, but it can't quite make for a compelling narrative. The story may be relatable to some audience but it's clear I'm not part of those audience.

    Very disappointing. It's shot beautifully and the sound is decently made. The problem is it tries to put many horror tropes and borrows too much from The Cabin in the Woods and Midsommar without doing any of it particularly well. The best bit of this film is that one scene from the teaser on youtube. Most of the violence is off-screen which is not really surprising since it's coming from Netflix. I saw the twist coming from miles away, the…
