From the trailer below, it is hard to tell if this is simply a psychological thriller or a horror movie—or even both. With tricks playing on the mind of the lead character and audiences, it’ll be a good guessing game on what’s actually going on in this film. Nonetheless, it’ll be a film to watch for those into thrillers.
