“Game of Thrones'” Kit Harrington and Adelaide Clemens as Vincent and Heather.

-Art direction was absolutely gorgeous.

-The 3D effects effectively immersed the viewer, and displayed textures and various monsters in a non-hokey way.

-Special effects of things like monsters and the digitally rendered scenery was top notch.

The nurses were eerie and sexy at the same time.

Negatives:

-The script and dialogue were downright awful at points.

-The story got out of hand, and jumped from one major plot point to another too quickly.
