Oof. Kind of feels like the pitch meeting for this one basically went: "So I was just reading about the idea of this 'Sin Eater' thing on Wikipedia the other day, it actually sounds really interesting, I'm super keen to put it in a movie!" "Oh great, so what's the story gonna be?" "I'm sorry the what?" "The story. You can't just say you're gonna put a Sin Eater in 'a movie' you have to like... Actually make the movie that it goes in. What's the movie gonna be about?" "...Oh no." "I mean it'll probably be fine." "Right? It'll probably be fine." _Final rating:★½: - Boring/disappointing. Avoid where possible._
