    This kind of feels like two different movies in one, but I still enjoyed it and was never really bored at all. It's like a little indie comedy for the first bit, then suddenly turns into kind of a weird thriller part way through.

    Definitely worth checking out if you're looking for something to watch on Netflix. Alison Brie is great.

    Can't wait to see what Cory Finley does next. Highly recommend checking this one out when it opens near you.

    The fact that a 146 minute long horror film, this strange, got picked up for distribution is kind of mind-blowing. The whole film feels like a disjointed combination of Crimson Peak and Shutter Island.

    But I mean "disjointed" in the best way possible. I loved this movie. It may be a little too ambitious for its own good, but it's super entertaining. It's so damn unique, the score is awesome, and the cinematography and production…
