    The plot, what little there is of one, is very Lovecraftian - endless flight through a seaside town, followers of an obscure sect pursuing you even in your sleep, locked up safe in your motel. But there's an overriding voice that is reminiscent of Shirley Jackson - events taking on intimate, sinister undertones that echo and echo through claustrophobic domesticity just starting to sprawl out into a post-war infinity.

    I was saving this for a day when I needed a bit of cheering up and it did not disappoint. Honestly, it took me until the homophobic slur to realize the two were a gay caricature. I just thought they were starting a band and needed some cool props. Sometimes I am dumb. Other than that, I can genuinely say I'm looking forward to the sequel. Plus, I really loved the score.
