Dreadout 11 4.5

Fantasia 2019: DREADOUT Review

Dreadout isn’t without its charms, but the grating, surface-level characters and uninteresting narrative make it a horror title that has some fun set pieces but offers little in the way of lasting power or memorability.    

Sadako 1-1 3

FURIE STILLS 1 6.5
