This movie is full of unlikable 20 something’s and my patience was wearing thin until about 35-45 minutes in when I started to get what was going on; this is the internet.
Over the past few years, social media has become more and more annoying for me. Watching people immediately react to minimal information just because another random person on the internet told you it was true. People reposting memes that indicate someone or something is doing something that just induces rage or minor hysteria in their little corner of the internet. It’s become exhausting.
To really say what I want to say, I’m going to have to spoil this movie, so I guess I’ll have to hit that Darth Vader icon below. This movie brilliantly comments on that part of internet culture. When Davidson’s character rants about people no longer having an original thought, and people just regurgitating what their internet friends say hit really hard for me because I’ve had that same exact grievance for awhile now. The final reveal of who the killer ultimately is, and what actually turned this night into such a crazy sequence of events is genius, beautiful, and hilarious. Stop believing everything you hear and even some of the shit you see, because you never really know what’s going on.
The movie says it much better than I just did, be nice I’m not a writer!
