    Honestly one of the most relatable depictions of mental illness I've seen in a movie. There's so much in here that really expresses how I experience depression and anxiety.

    The sense of detachment, then those bursts where you just don't want to, can't, be alone. (When she goes to that diner with her neighbour). How you are followed by fear (here taking the form of the undead man). Those periods where you feel you're not part of the world and/or…

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Another one I'm surprised I never watched back in the day, but perhaps I was put off by how bad DeVour was that I vowed never to watch another movie just because I fancy Jensen Ackles. Who knows?

    It's always refreshing to see more realistic depictions of friendship between girls in movies.

Any film where girls band together to protect each other will always make me happy. Quite touching.
