sydney’s review published on Letterboxd:
possibly the most wes craven-y wes craven movie, which is probably why some people love it and a lot of people hate it. if someone wanted to tear this apart for misogyny, racism, ableism re: mental disorders it wouldn't be difficult, personally it was not unpleasant enough to offend me more than the 90% of horror movies that are just as bad or worse. this is too ridiculous to be very scary or emotional, but there is one painful shot of pretty dangling feet where the blood just keeps coming and coming...and then there are the scenes involving mirrors...great digital color palette and wild as hell opening sequence and good characters and fun bird mythology? the way he thinks teenagers talk is delightful to me. i want/need to watch it again. i'm now over halfway into completing his filmography. sigh.
