This Twitter user sums up our feelings.
With touches of post-apocalyptic themes in the plot, the movie revolves around monsters/invisible creatures that make people kill themselves. The creatures take on the shape and form of your worst fears. Leaving the actual picturization of the ‘creature’ to the viewer, only makes it scarier
While it is definitely fun to watch alone in the dark, having people beside you is better we guess, you know, in case you pass out. *Just kidding*
