Nope ★★½

I dug the Cloud Jaws (or really Tremors considering the setting) vibes of the first half; less into the Close Encounters of the TMZ Kind feel of the second. Everything kind of lost momentum and urgency for me after a big scene. The Candle Cove-esque Gordy moments are some of Jordan Peele's best work but they felt incredibly out of place by the movie's end. Don't get me wrong though, aside from the wonky script this is some fantastic filmmaking: excellent cinematography, sound design, and performances (especially Daniel Kaluuya) down the line. As a huge Michael Wincott fan, it was great to see him on screen again but give the guy more to do than rasp kiddie song lyrics as his big moment (although he did nail it).
