I encourage everyone not to read this review before seeing the film. I’ll obviously do my best not reveal any spoilers but to me, everything is a spoiler when it comes to this one.
I’m almost finished with my year of horror movies, 4 more to go I believe but this one may have surprised me the most. First off, the marketing for it was excellent and frankly, everywhere. All of the sudden I HAD to see this film despite knowing nothing about the plot. Take fucking notes people, this is exactly what the film community wants. It revealed just enough to get our interest and the rest left as mystery.
The acting is superb, all of it. It’s so immersive that I didn’t even consider the acting once while I was watching it. They made the scenario they conjured up, about as realistic as possible.
This just wasn’t what I was expecting and this entire project has almost come full circle to mock me. The film took everything I’ve come to know about horror movies in general and tossed them out of the window. All my preconceived notions, real time predictions and plot pattern awareness were voided.
I’m psyched to see this getting the recognition it deserves but I’m also somewhat surprised that most people are finding any value in it. It’s a great film though and one that everyone should see in its entirety.
