| Pushing up Daisy
This film is a well-intentioned horror movie that suffers from the budget not matching the ambition.

I am a big fan of Daisy Ridley, so like many, I wanted to see this. She does NOT disappoint in this movie. It's interesting seeing her playing a cold and merciless personification of evil, although it takes a good 30 of the 80 minutes before she appears.

I watched it out of curiosity, and I was satisfied mostly with what I was looking for-a good performance by Daisy Ridley playing an evil character. Maybe a second watch might be better, but there's so much choppy incoherence in this story.

At 1 hour and 19 minutes, it doesn't ask for much of your time.

There were some really good ideas here, but some of it seems to really get lost in the choppy editing and non-linear storytelling. If perhaps a more experienced crew behind the camera could've gotten involved, it would've saved this some narrative problems it really suffers from. Maybe this would've been better as a very memorable 45-minute episode of Twilight Zone or Black Mirror.

Did the actors do well? Absolutely! Casting was done quite well for this movie.

Can I recommend this? I'm split. If you're a horror fan and/or a Daisy Ridley fan, check it out. There's DEFINITELY something here for you. I'm glad I watched it!

If you're neither, then there's not much here to grab you and keep you invested.
