    Look, I enjoyed this. Yes, it's about a well-off kid with supportive friends and family in a pretty liberal community, but with all the stories of queer suffering in the world, I don't have a problem with giving gay characters the same treatment we give straight characters in these movies. While it's not the most subtle story, I found it charming and I think it'll give straight audiences some insight into the difficulty of coming out that they may not have had otherwise.

    Unfortunately for this film, there was a story about how it was super scary and going viral for its scariness. Which is going to mean a lot of people approach it looking for something specific that they aren't actually going to get.

    It is more scary than your average horror movie, but not because its scares are particularly novel or super scary. It's just a very solid horror film. Great actors, impressive use of place, maximizes creepiness with minimal effects.…

    Solid, with an impressively creepy location. The big scary thing, when finally revealed, is one of the more interesting I can remember, and since most big scary things are boring and derivative, that is saying a lot.

    Spielberg's gonna Spielberg. Meryl is great, but there's not much there for anyone else to chew on. Not much to really feel, not many emotional notes outside Graham's story arc. Too inspirational, not as in the weeds. Spotlight was clearly better. And yet I liked it more than I expected to.
