The Pros:

Intense AF!

Wow, this film kept me on the edge of my seat and then some! I was so drawn in and I couldn’t look away. I love the thriller genre, but this film took things to another level and I think a lot of that was because it was dark and rooted in the real horror of what happens when someone’s cold-blooded actions are covered up by their connections and power.

Kept me guessing…

I really didn’t know what would happen next once the horrifying secret was revealed. This film wasn’t afraid to brutally rip away hope from some of its characters and it was never predictable. The villain was beyond terrifying and I am still shaking after watching some of those scenes…

The Cons:

Slower start…

The beginning of this film had a slower pace and I wasn’t really sure if I was going to keep watching, but once I got to the thirty minute mark, I could not turn off this film. It lured me in to this dark and twisted story that was so engrossing. There’s a little bit of set-up to sit through, but I recommend sticking it out because it’s worth it.

So am I in or out?

A ruthless thriller with a satisfying ending!

When sisters, Nina and Gemma are vacationing in Hawaii with their friends, they get invited to an exclusive party on a private island that seems too good to be true. There’s only one rulethey can’t miss their ferry at midnight or they’ll have to wait until morning to leave the island. Only they didn’t realize that breaking this rule meant they would be hunted down on the island one by one.

Who will make it off the island alive?

I hope you enjoy my new island thriller!
