I can't believe my shit theater is actually getting this, excited
I had never heard of this until today when the trailer popped up as an ad on youtube I forgot to click "skip this ad." So glad I let it play, this movie looks great.
Damn, this kinda sucked.
What didn't you like about it?
I thought this was really well done and Christopher Abbot was awesome as always. There were some horror elements to it, but it was more of psychological, post-apocalyptic story based around paranoia. It built up nicely throughout, but it kinda fell short of being great for me. Shults has a bright future ahead of him for sure though.
I loved a lot of things about it, but
lack character development really hurt it. The actor that played Travis wasn't terrible, but I feel like that character should've been much younger. I mean he's 17 years old and they treated him like a small child. Why not just cast a 10-12 year old? The end would have been much more impactful if some backstory/flashbacks had been shown. I didn't really care about any of the characters.
I think this is being mismarketed as a horror film, because that's really not what it is.
Yeah, the pullquote of it being a "horror masterpiece" is super misleading. I'm guessing they're just hedging their bets to make back their budget in the opening week off of people wanting to see a horror movie and if they like it, great. If not, oh well.
bummed that people aren't liking this. maybe if I go in with the expectation that it's not a horror film, my reaction will be more positive?!
I agree with a fair amount of this. I didn't care about the characters really at all. I thought the whole plot was a bit weak and needed a little more depth. I think I also didn't like it as much because it was not at all what I was expecting based on the little bit I had seen/heard about it. I'd agree about the mismarketing as a horror film for sure.
Also, I thought it was kind of strange/funny when Paul
was getting his face bashed in by Will with what I thought was a rock or something, and Paul's face was clearly fucked up...it seemed extremely less beat up in the shots that followed.
This is my approach! Have you seen Krisha?
I have. I liked it, but it was a little slow for my taste. I think if I go into this one with the expectation that it's gonna be "less about the plot and more about the filmmaking" (if that makes sense), then I'll probably enjoy it too.
Yea, it's a finely crafted film from a director's standpoint.
I was transfixed throughout that movie, one of the more unsettling dramas I've ever seen - the horror techniques were on full display
He was just tomahawking him in the face with both fists.
There's no way my three screen theatre is ever going to get this. I think I'm going to take the three hour drive to the city to see this. I've been stoked on Trey ever since Krisha
This and The Mummy are playing at the small theater on my block. My friends all want to see the mummy but I'm trying to convince them that this will be better.
If your friends actively want to see The Mummy I suggest catching this one on your own
Is that the one with the clown?
Hated this movie. Wanted to like it too. Damn
I don't want to spoil much, but this is not the movie to see with a bunch of people, especially if they're upset by some pretty dark stuff.
Also, "The Mummy" is a huge waste of time.
I enjoyed the photography and direction, but that's about it. It felt like one of the character-focused Walking Dead episodes. TWD has explored the idea that humans are the most dangerous creatures. I wasn't disappointed at the lack of zombies in this at all, I just wish it had more to say that hasn't been said in other shows/comics/movies. I guess it's just a timing thing for me. This story would be more intriguing to me if I encountered it a few years ago.
I did a double-feature of this and The Mummy today. Yikes.
This was...not good.
Eeeep!! Seeing this in an hour
The mixed reaction is only making me more excited
I'm usually one that rolls my eyes at the section of horror fans that just want jump scares and dislike "moody" horror films. This time, they aren't wrong. This was marketed deceptively, IMO. Hell, the title is misleading. There is no "it" to be seen.
