    ★★

    Gina Rodriguez gets to be funny and crass, and Lakeith is extremely good in limited screentime imo.

    This soundtrack is otherwordly good. They gave me Lizzo and Phoebe Bridgers and Vampire Weekend in the same goddamn movie.

    Otherwise, generally... bad :(

    This shit should have won like three Oscars and it got nominated for none. Toni Collete is majesterial and haunting, the kid actors are creepy as hell, and the cinematography is unlike anything I've seen in a horror movie. Deliberate and tension building with almost no jump-scare payoff. Uses gratuitous violence to amplify great performances, but it's still the slightest bit gratuitous. I've never been so happy about being so uncomfortable.

    A beautiful treatise on what it means to discover the value in understanding yourself and your relationships to other people. Not to mention funny and #relatable
