Viewing Notes

I picked this up on Blu-ray like two days before it appeared on Shudder. Doh! My intent was to screen it at our Xmas Horror Movie Night and it worked out bc Scott shockingly doesn’t have Shudder. This was definitely a highlight and held up to the hype from Fantastic Fest. Also glad they changed that awful title. Cool, cruel flick that subverts expectations. Dug it a lot. Olivia DeJonge is a star in the making. Hope she gets more good roles.
