Camp is fun, but the melodramatic dialogue left me feeling hollow and disconnected from the experience. I felt like I was watching two movies twisted together: a cult horror classic from the 80s, and a thoughtful modern psychological thriller. I liked one of them.
I appreciate this for what it is and the intention behind it, but it’s not my cup of tea. For me, the overtly deliberate homage to the genre was the parasitic twin to what could have been a really cool movie. The “why am I calling the police” line was great though, I loved that. Maybe I just don’t get it!
