can't imagine someone more equipped to direct this than the guy who made Meet the Fockers
"people laugh during this because they don't know how to deal with their fear!!!" nope, it's just funny. and pretty boring!
I love obscurity esp in the horror genre, but this and Hereditary didn't really have a through-line that made everything click for me. the shock value doesn't have enough substance to stick and the characters feel kinda throwaway aside from Dani. I think it's an interesting cult movie, but still don't buy that Ari is reinventing horror.
and the visuals didn't look THAT much different from any other A24 movie *ducks*
