Director: Ry Russo-Young

After the first day is done and you see how she dies, I thought I would get bored as it is quite a repetitive film but they handled the story and structure really well. The first day dragged a bit and I wanted that to be quicker but after that, it got good. It was really enjoyable and entertaining. It’s an exciting film because you’re dying to see how it ends. Will she or won’t she die? I’m not going to spoil that for anyone. It’s a satisfying ending though.

It helps that the main character is really nice and she doesn’t have very nice friends and she slowly starts standing up to them. Those friends are the perfect depiction of what high schools are like these days. They’re just full of bullies and they’re not a nice place to be, at all.


Some of the cinematography in the film was inspiring. There were some beautiful shots and some of that is down to the location. I loved the mountains and houses that were there. It looked like a really nice place to live, very posh and modern. It just looked so peaceful.

I would definitely recommend the film to teenagers. It shows that you just need to grow up and if you pick on people for who they are then you’re not a very nice person. Be kind, always. The world doesn’t need bullies.

A beautifully constructed mystery film!
