This movie is one part weird Lovecraftian disgusting worminess, one part mesmerizing water scenes, one part Evil Dead zombie look alikes, and one part gorgeous scenery.
Not a bad little movie, but definitely nothing extremely memorable.
I watched this earlier today before I went out to a friend's for the day, and for the most part I couldn't get it off my mind. It was so good!
It's crazy because the first half or so almost felt like a dark comedy. Then it just kept getting darker and darker until it was just sad.
I found every character super lovable, and acted to perfection. The little world built inside this mental institution sucks you right in…
One big thing I learned about myself while watching this movie is that I absolutely despise theater crowds. I had the same issue when I saw Hereditary. People expecting just another mainstream, stereotypical "horror" movie filled with jump scares and trash acting. Anytime there's any sort of nudity they laugh, there isn't a single person I can't hear eating, everybody talks. This might be my new biggest pet peeve. JUST WATCH THE DAMN MOVIE.
