    This must be one of the most stressful movies I've ever seen. This is disgusting and gaslighting at its best.
    Idk how people can be "brainwashed" like that.

    However, it turns out that it's true. People will do anything ordered by an authoritative figure. This is the horrific part. The real horror.

    I really haaate this kind of movie, I wanna give it low score, but I can't coz how this movie makes me strongly feel. I'm disturbed!

    Maybe people…

    But other than that, it's just sex sex sex sex sex.

    I don't need to say Madonna is insufferable, right? Is she aiming to be Greta Garbo here? Or Ingrid Bergman?

    His one liners are what to be expected from Reynolds. Some of them are kinda…

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    This is one of the 'most' anticipated horror movies I have been looking forward to.
    But I'm sorry!!! This isn't as satisfying as I thought it would be.

    It has nice premise and very 'kino'-looking visual. The black and white, the nearly-square aspect ratio, the Lighthouse anyone? Also near the ending, when Maria and Jorge enter the 'illusion', the aspect ration changes. It's so beautiful.

    But what are they aiming for?? I think the movie bites more than it can…
