    ★★

    I was so tired and bored during the entirety of this movie. I did enjoy the opening black and white segment though, it felt like it was trying to accomplish something with its very specific visual call backs to Universal's monster movies.

    Also I love the dumb as hell reveal of Van Helsing's backstory.

Honestly they should've just done that, would've made things go much smoother.

    Holy hell what a fantastic film to see for my last show at my first Sundance. This was easily the most captivating and cinematic film of Sundance 2018. The girls fucking killed it and even if they don't go on to act in anything else, they're superb actors. The Q&A was like an extra comedy show after the movie.
