    There’s a lot to like about this movie, but ultimately it’s something of an unsatisfying mess.

    Strange how you can know as soon as the credits roll that there will be people hailing this as a masterpiece and telling you you “just don’t get it.”

    But don’t worry, you got it, and it’s okay that you didn’t think it was that great.

    Leigh Whannell knocks it out of the park with this nifty little thriller.

    There’re some iffy bits here and there, sure, and some suspension of disbelief is required - but the whole thing is elevated by some genuine shocks and great tension throughout. 

    Elizabeth Moss rounds off the rough edges with an absolutely excellent leading performance, well worth a late night watch.
