Selfie From Hell – from a short to a movie| KT Review

Do you remember when the short Selfie From Hell (that this movie evolved from) showed up on the internet? Shared, liked, and shared again. Well, they went and made it into a movie! So, I couldn’t resist this movie when it popped up on Netflix this week.

Selfie From Hell Review Conclusion

I would watch it again – Loved the short and have really enjoyed seeing how this film has evolved around it. Not hugely scary but an interesting watch with a few carefully placed jump scares. Kept me engrossed but lost me a little towards the end as I didn’t quite understand what was happening. I will be watching it again to figure out the ending. The monster was pretty cool too. Worth a watch, particularly if you want to see the story behind the original short.

P.P.S. And for those wondering, this is how I rate the movies I watch. If I also score it on IMDb then the number of stars that I gave it is doubled – so a 4-star review on here gets an 8-star review on IMDb 🙂
