And then things start to go wrong.
And then then they go really, really, really wrong.
My sweetie and I watched this together, and our mouths literally dropped open.
When you watch, you’ll know when. And I bet your mouth will hang open too.
This movie is like taking You’re Next, crossing it with The Babysitter, and then adding a (gore-light) version of Funny Games. It is hilarious, surprising, and dark…but not completely “circle the drain” nihilistic. It is light on the gore factor (hooray, seriously, I dislike body horror) and light on the jump scare factor (hooray), but totally kills the rest of it.
I can’t go into specifics for, um, reasons, but I thoroughly enjoyed this film while still being rocked by it. It is perhaps my favorite horror movie since Cabin in the Woods. HIGHLY recommended.
And Merry Christmas.
