    I liked it a lot the first time I saw it, but found a few things annoyed me - including the 'logic' of the 'it'. This time around I liked it a lot more and these things didn't bother me as much.

    I was expecting more of a horror film going into this, but found it was really more of a black comedy with some horror elements. We follow Warren Thompson as he goes about a regular day and he’s obviously a very lonely man and possibly a little crazy.
