    3.5 stars for the first two parts, which I really digged, made my skin crawl and will no doubt engender many nightmares. 
    Unfortunately, the third act, which is absolutely bat-shit-crazy and rather incomprehensible in its allegory, let everything down and gets a bare 1 star from me. 
    I didn’t think Alex Garland could top its ending of Annihilation to leave me with a mind-boggling impression. Unfortunately, it’s also left me with a bitter taste in my mouth.

    ★★★

    This film could have been powerful but in the end was too chaste, and the character relationships too lightly touched upon for the film to have a real impact imo.

    Can’t even imagine how badly my allergies would have been triggered if I had been on that shoot!

    What a treat to be sent a press link to watch before everyone because I am part of an erotic thriller podcast! Saw it twice (once pausing all the time to take notes - I wrote 12 pages of notes, dear reader! - and another without interruption) and this was very enjoyable, despite a few flaws. For my whole opinion, you need to listen to our next podcast episode which won’t be up before w/c 11th April unfortunately. In any case, do watch it! I’d be curious to know what you thought!

    The amount of horrendous films I have to watch for our Fatal Attractions Podcast. This is absolutely atrocious. Even worse than the first one. Can we please prevent that writer and the production team from making others? 
    Throw both films into the sea and never send an expedition to retrieve them.
