    ★★★

    I was a lot younger last time I saw this. Today's rewatch was only the second time I've seen it, and I didn't like it nearly as much as I remembered. I guess it seemed a lot scarier and more interesting when I was little. This time around, I was actually kind of bored.

    It’s a super clever movie. I was convinced that I kept spotting inconsistencies and flaws, only to be proven wrong when I realized it was all foreshadowing. That ending was so satisfying.
