    Spring 2014

    ★★★★ Watched 17 Jun, 2015

    This movie is your classic boy meets girl, boy falls in love with girl, girl turns out to be some lovecraftian horror, boy has realization that he stuck his penis in said lovecraftian horror, then boy realizes he's already in too deep so he might as well roll with it.

Simmons. Miles Teller was good but Simmons fucking owned this movie by giving us this intense animalistic character who terrifies the hell out of you.

    I've seen people criticize the underdeveloped side characters…
