I liked it... just wish I wasn’t able to guess every twist based solely on the trailer.
Fun, but a bit too cute. All the on screen text, meta-dialogue, and an aesthetic clearly selected to align with the new “Amblin” era... c’mon... that’s too easy.
This is chum in the water for the newly minted “horror” fans, fresh out of their third screening of “It”.
And the worst part is— it could have been a solid, if not amazing genre flick on its own accord.
Or... maybe I’m just a cynical curmudgeon who presumes to know too…
