We don’t even see a genuine effort from these characters to get out of the house. It’s like they know they are in a B-grade horror movie and try to behave accordingly.
“Sowmya Rajendran reviewing for The News Minute criticized the screenplay as “series of unimaginative scares, with no effort to build the suspense or create tension”. He opines that it is horror in itself that the film was made. He concludes that stream the film only if there is a compelling reason and if anyone wants some scares, “… be warned, there is no boo, only boohoo.”
