    Too long.
    But other than that, it was a pretty enjoyable horror thriller. It was fun to spot Gareth Evan's virtuosic action camera work every once in a while.
    It was just a bit too drawn out. Some subplots weren't all that thrilling, and the "reveal" of Captain Canady as the truly psychotic one seemed like a left turn.
    Some of the violence seemed almost out of Jeremy Saulnier's book.

    A true classic in every sense of the word.
