    Watched with my younger brother, who verbally eviscerated Paul Dano every second he was onscreen.

    Fantastic entry into the “guy gets in way over his head and gets sucked into a world of horrifying violence” subgenre. Deals just as much in quiet moments of dread as it does in acts of sweaty, nauseating brutality. I still can’t get over how much Dwight looks like that one dude from Brooklyn Nine Nine

    Genuinely unnerving. Jordan Peele's trademark humor seeps through occasionally, but there's no mistaking this for anything but a full-fledged horror movie. After the cerebral thrill-ride of Get Out, it felt good to genuinely WINCE at what was happening onscreen. Lupita Nyong'o's performance(s) were spectacular, and her presence filled me with a feeling of dread that rivals some of the best movie villains ever.

    Ultimately though, I left the theater more curious than terrified. A lot of ideas get thrown out…
