Being the psychotic obsessive she is she cannot let him go. Now Holly wants revenge and will do whatever it takes to get it.
What We Think: Netflix WTF! This is an awful, terrible, no good very bad film! Acting in this seems like a chore. Like the actors could not be bothered to portray characters and instead settle for far less. I don’t know what Bella Thorne is doing here. She’s never impressed me. She’s always kind of the same character. Look no further than the film The DUFF is it really good, but in spite of Thorne not because of it. Taylor John Smith, what is this guy doing? Is he made of wood? Because quite honestly he’s an emotionless hunk of flesh. For all you ladies emphasis on the hunk.
Our Grade: D-, Go ahead and just not watch this. Don’t even skip it because looking in its direction might cause some sort of incurable disease. It’s flat, not well directed and really just a clustered mess that wants so badly to be Fatal Attraction (which came out on this weekend exactly 30 years ago) for the contemporary audience but is instead just an absolute disaster. It’s a millennial mass of messy cliches, self-absorbed and never really able to figure out what it’s supposed to be. Pretty much exactly a contemporary audiences realistic nightmare.
