    Masterpiece. Loved this. Great mix of disturbing horror, dark uncomfortable comedy, and almost a coming-of-age type spiritual awakening in the midst of all of it. Best visual representation of psychedelics I've seen in a film. Ari Aster is the real deal and certainly does his homework considering how detailed everything is when it comes to the occult nature of his work.

It's ridiculous how resilient Kaya Scodelario is to gators.

    For some reason I thought she was Allison Williams the whole time.

    This is like some ungodly abominational love-child between The Happening and A Quiet Place and I hated pretty much every godforsaken second of it. Honestly might rank among the dumbest and nonsensical films I've seen this year. Thinks and acts like it's some grand cosmic horror masterpiece but is anything but. I've even seen trailers for this on TV. I'd think if Netflix had any sense they would attempt to bury this as it's a major disappointment. I read…
