Not as good as the first but it feels logical to focus on the doubt of ghost hunting. That said, because they focused on “are they faking it” there are way more scenes of “is this real or not real” and it gets very Michigan J Frog on me. I’d rather have them to commit or not commit because I feel like there is a significant less scares in this movie, and the ghost’s motivation is unexplored and left unaddressed leaving me somewhat unsatisfied. Plus there are some truly bonkers lighthearted scenes in this which threw me for a loop.
So just every part of this movie is great. I went in knowing nothing and had even avoided trailers which probably made me like it even more. The performances are fantastic it’s shot beautifully and it strikes a beautiful contrast between quirky and tense in a way I’ve personally never seen done before. I can’t reccomenf enough and everyone should also go in knowing as little as possible.
This movie isn’t necessarily bad but I do agree it really does lack a message. Which is a shame because I can see the potential in it. It could have looked at mental health, the results of slashing social services, or even wealth disparity, but it chose to say that those were just contributing factors to the decision of a broken man turning into a killer. I thought the relationship with Zazie Beetz was unbelievable and rushed and the reveal/justification…
