    The Visit 2015

    ★½ Watched 10 Jul, 2016

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    A Goosebumps episode stretched out to 90m. And most Goosebumps episodes are both scarier and less-contrived.

    (However, I am a little confused by the reaction to epilogue -- the whole thing is premised on Hahn's character achieving some kind of reconciliation, and when it becomes clear that goal is impossible, there has to be some kind of reckoning with that. It would've been insulting and kind of offensive if there wasn't.)

    Hmmm, can we do a remake of Total Recall without any of that pesky science fiction? Why yes, we can!

    Hey girl. Sorry you're too young and too small to do anything about global warming, your poverty, your father's horrendous parenting style, your missing mom, your terrible schooling, your community's penchant for alcoholism and general unwindulaxing, and being inculcated with values that emphasize the masculine ("beast it") to the detriment of the feminine ("don't be a pussy"). Oh yeah, and your father dying.

    But hey! You stood up to some imaginary monster pigs, so good for you.
