I just watched speak no evil and I’m extremely destroyed, stressed and DISTURBED with this movie
It’s a PSYCHOLOGICAL SUSPENSE/horror movie that makes you totally uncomfortable… I’m still stressed but it’s worth watching pic.twitter.com/JwC3R1Npwd

Speak No Evil sucks. A film that gives anguish through behavior and basic etiquette. Relationships are made of tolerance, when you allow certain things with passivity, in addition to being subject to social castration, you are not only a victim but an accomplice as well. pic.twitter.com/7mJ8xeybl2
