There was an old Roger Moore flick called "The Man that haunted Himself" that did the "haunted by a part of yourself that has escaped and wants to become you" thing with a bit of subtlety.

This thing looks like it will blow its load in the first 30 minutes, and after that be as subtle as Christmas advertising.

Sometimes irony is pretty ironic.

It's a horror movie, chickendick. Not a thriller.

That looks damn good - I'm hoping the trailer didn't show too much.

Yeah, the wife is out. I'm down though.

Tuned in, immediately get to watch cringey Ubisoft talking head offering her deepest sympathies to the families impacted by the Orlando shooting while flanked by a man in a giraffe suit and some sort of "horrifically garish neon costumes through the ages" exhibit or something.  We need to stop this fucking planet right now and sort some shit out. -Kail

So, so, so disappointing.


What a waste of a Cinema trip.

Mixed reports, and it hasn't encouraged me to the point I'm interested in going to the theater. Essentially folks who like horror movies are pleased with it being a good horror movie, whereas people who expected cleverly subversive plot and politics are disappointed. I'm getting a lot of, "This is Jordan Peele's Shyamalan film."

I enjoyed it quite a bit. Don't expect any real answers. Things are explained, but not really. It's still left a bit vague and the audience just has to accept it an move on. Also the twist at the very end is telegraphed pretty early to the point where I maybe wouldn't even call it a twist. Or maybe I just watch too many movies.

It's neither a good horror, nor clever at all.

That's literally all I wanna say on the matter.  I feel really, really cheated though I'm aware no-one owed me shit.
