This was a fun twist on ghost/haunted house movies.

I'm kind of a wimp when it comes to horror movies, but I love time-loop situations. How scary is it, on a Scream-Saw continuum?

It's not really that scary or graphic, from my memories of it. It's mostly mood.

It starts out strong and there are some interesting twists and complications but I do think it loses focus the longer it goes on. It's definitely worth watching, though.

I think it's TV-14, so it's not too rough.

This is resolutely Not Bad. Natalie, who made Cube us a pretty solid to good director and the underlying ideas here are good. I'd give it a 5 out of 10 with the note that people who love time loops will probably rate it about one and half points higher, making it pretty decent.

The variations in the loop as bad signs are fascinating.

I scrolled past this a bunch on Netflix because the poster didn't grab me, and then someone or other recommended it. Could have been someone I know, could have been one of those "best horror movies of some narrow subset or other you're not watching for some reason" listicles. Doesn't matter.
What does matter is I really enjoyed this movie, I am glad I watched it, and I think about it often.
