I just got back from seeing this. I knew hardly anything about it, I had just heard the insane amount of buzz. So many people told me it was a must see. I also knew it had a 92% rating on Rotten Tomatoes which kind of blew my mind. I was very, very curious to see what all the fuss is about.
This movie is going to keep your mind going a mile a minute trying to figure out what the hell is going on. If you’re totally confused during the first act, don’t worry. I always seem to get weird movies that other people find puzzling and this one totally had me stumped. Because so many movies are the same, usually I can predict what will happen next, especially in the horror genre. During this one, I had no idea. For that reason alone, this film is worth seeing. Anything different is refreshing.
However, this review isn’t a total rave. It wasn’t as good as it could have been. I think they really only scratched the surface of the idea they had for this movie. I have a lot of questions. There are certain elements that I wish were more fleshed out. I wanted to see and know more. I definitely would be interested in seeing a prequel. We’ll see what happens.
You should stay in the dark about this movie like I did and go in having no idea what to expect. Love it or hate it, you’ll definitely be taken on a ride. If you’re looking for some form of reference, it’s kind of like a bizarre Hunger Games and Thirteen Ghosts hybrid.
