It ended as if the storywriter didn't know how to end it in a believable way. The same problem as with hundreds of other films. (Producer: "We need an end, have you already written the end?" - Writer: "I still can't find a convincing end." - Producer: "Then do a whatever stupid end, but write it now, the budget is at-its-end !!" ...............

I've no idea why people call the end 'a good twist', when it's a failure in the script !

Also; the storywriter seriously didn't know what to do further with that para-psych character that was brought in, then dropped out of the storyline with no film-logic reason at all. (Thrown away tread) It happens in a 'cheap' production that a character disapears halfway, because the actor had a quarrel with the producer about the payments... lol ... who knows why it went cut out here. (Will we ever know ?)

I also wonder how the casting gets done. Imagine: "Needed, 20 fit looking girls, and one fat girl" ... the fat girl did not even look 'very fat' either, so the presumed fat shaming from the others is not even carried on convincing. Theatrical.

Anyway, too much symptoms of an unfinished product. 3rd grade film.
