The Empty Man

The Empty Man ★★★★

Midsommar as a nihilistic Creepypasta. The Bye Bye Man if it were Fincherian high art. The vicious weaponization of cliche, intelligent and savage.

Such a perfect midway point between arthouse ‘elevated’ (ugh) horror and a spooky 2010s blockbuster that its very existence and superb execution is a beautiful anomaly. A summoning requires sacrifice. And James Badge Dale gives this his all.
