This was fun, but these movies really need more interesting human characters if they're going to insist on focusing people instead of monsters for like 80% of the runtime. It's the biggest flaw in most films in this series. The action is really entertaining and the visual effects are great, but I do not care at all about any of the people.

Somehow this got funnier the second time around? Honestly I haven't seen a film that I loved this much in so long. Beautifully shot and edited, incredibly unique both in terms of its story and its use of sound/soundtrack, and flawlessly acted. How the fuck is this a debut?
Can't wait to see what Cory Finley does next. Highly recommend checking this one out when it opens near you.
"I'm not a fucking patient!"
The fact that a 146 minute long horror film, this strange, got picked up for distribution is kind of mind-blowing. The whole film feels like a disjointed combination of Crimson Peak and Shutter Island.
But I mean "disjointed" in the best way possible. I loved this movie. It may be a little too ambitious for its own good, but it's super entertaining. It's so damn unique, the score is awesome, and the cinematography and production…
