Our Review

Sugar at what cost? Seriously Don, with a body under your feet and the killer with a knife in front of you, you still had the nerve to complain about her cookies? Brenda was doing an amazing job and almost got Karen on her side. It was hilarious when Don mentions less sugar in the cookie and we expect the film is taking a lighter note, but situation goes out of control and Karen goes on a killing spree. Though the plot was good, the transition between the humor tone to serious tone wasn't adequate.

On the whole film script, screenplay, dialogues, camera, direction, cinematography and acting are all commendable. Just the climax could have been better in our opinion.
