A graphic adrenaline rush of a movie. The violence is sickening, but it's hardly gratuitous (well, in a few places maybe). The tension is built impressively well in just 1.5 hours. The few moments that are meant to hit you emotionally do so, and the rest just unsettle. Not a very realistic movie by some means, but there's something so disturbing underneath the movie's blood-soaked surface. Thematically it's deeper than I anticipated which was a pleasant surprise.

Finally got back to theatres for the first time since January 2020 and what an experience it was. It's definitely a lot to take in, so ambitious yet it manages to adapt the novel so well. I want to watch it again for sure, hopefully as soon as possible and with as big a screen as possible.

I was expecting something atrocious but… after the first 15 or so minutes I kind of enjoyed this? Pretty harmless and sweet, with a couple of surprisingly dark jokes that just made things really funny. If anything, this made me nostalgic.

Soundtrack is pretty forgettable and bordering on annoying sometimes with the notable exception of the “Angry Mob” song. Raised the rating by a .5. Absolute bop.
