I also knew it wouldn’t be easy to understand, and it would have hidden meanings. What I didn’t know, was that this movie is based on José Saramago’s novel, and that it has one of scariest jump scares I have ever encountered.…

So, obviously, to escape this unfortunate situation, I’m bringing you another Commercial Break because me needs to calm the fuck down, and get things out of my system before throwing out a review after a review in the upcoming weeks.…
