A lot of reviews here have (rightly) trumpeted the fact that this would have killed it with a theatrical release. I agree. This is the best movie in the franchise since the original.
That said, watching this in half hour bursts as I adjust to life with a newborn baby was my viewing experience. It still kicked ass.
A heady brew. Starts off as a social drama detailing the troubles of an isolated village in Northern Brazil before bringing in elements of The Most Dangerous Game, grindhouse and early John Carpenter. Also includes:
- Udo Kier
- Drones disguised as UFOs
- A capoeira sequence set to sythnwave
- A Bolsanaro like figure being ridiculed at every turn.
- Nudity in all of its non-airbrushed glory.
