    Rating may drop on rewatch, but I enjoyed this far more than I expected to after reading all the negative reviews. I don't think it's as strong as Unbreakable or Split , but it was still fairly entertaining and the acting all around is pretty solid even from the supporting characters played by Anya Taylor-Joy and Sarah Paulson.

    It gets real messy towards the end, but i think I'd still recommend it.

    Without a doubt one of the best looking films I've ever seen. Every set is full of beautiful colour and the cinematography is fantastic throughout.

    Highly recommended.

    "The only thing worse than being incompetent, or being unkind, or being evil, is being indecisive."

    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…
