    ★½

    I mean... I guess this was SLIGHTLY better than the first one? But that's really not saying much. Also, I really need the backstory for that Chronicles of Riddick poster in the background.

    P.S. NO, I didn't pay for this movie - you can stream it on HBO, if you need some cringe in your life.

    So, judging by the reviews and ratings, this is going to be a bit of an unpopular opinion, but I wasn't the biggest fan of this one. While it's obviously well-made, well-acted, and really well-shot.... I'm just not a fan of torture horror. It's certainly a memorable film, and it puts an interesting spin on the whole prom trope, but this just simply wasn't for me. Also, most of Brent's friend's storyline seems to just be there to fill in the time. I wouldn't normally rate something I didn't like 3 out of 5, but the visuals and style definitely elevate the experience.

    Me before watching this movie: 2h 44mins? That seems a bit long...
    Me after watching this movie: I could have watched another hour...

    I don't think I've ever been this consistently stressed during a film, beginning to end. All tension, no bullshit. Also, everything else: just wow. I'll attempt filming a review tomorrow, which will probably just be me gushing semi-coherently for 5 minutes.
