I'm the executive producer for Redwood Sound Labs. I've created and/or produced twenty shows over the last eleven years.
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
The sound design was creepy and disinate in an original way. The smiles seemed sinister, but they gave them all away in the trailer. There was a couple of jump scares that felt lifted by the appearance of the ghost from Ringu. The haunting device was It Follows with a face lift. Now I have to get into the spoiler part.
This movie was clearly about mental illness and trauma. Parker Finn doesn't bury the lead; he holds your hand…
I vividly remember watching the NBA in the 90's and 00's and recognizing with all my basketball friends that:
1) Superstars got all the breaks
2) Referees tried to make sure that series went to Game 6 and 7
3) Certain teams like the Bulls in the 90's and the Lakers in 00's had the referees swallow their whistles when the series were on the line
Tim Donaghy turned witness and revealed these three things were true, WHICH MOST FANS COULD SEE! Now I watch this doc feeling equal parts validation and frustration.
