Remains an absolute giddy watch. James Wan's swings in third act here are one for the ages; imagine the Hello Zepp sequence from Saw but apply the mesmeric shock to it tenfolds for 30 minutes, and add some crazy fights and chuunibyou madness ("I know you're in there somewhere, you have to fight him!" "I can now do the tricks that you can"). Absolutely gut-busting that the ending is a near-identical inverse to his buddy Leigh's 2018 effort Upgrade, if that isn't a friendship worth admiring.

And for the record; I rewatched this with a couple of my friends. Half of them loved it, the other two didn't. Take that as you will to how James swung the freaking bat. For me however, it is a homerun and one of the year's best movies.

Luke Castellan this is all your fault
