    ★★★★

    Second time experiencing this film, however this time with a front row seat to a Q&A with Timothée Chalamet - I’m an emotional wreck all over again.

    ★★½

    Unexpected is an understatement.

This film had me absolutely baffled throughout, I wasn't sure what was really going on or whether I was enjoying the cheap humour/stock teen horror characters, however I knew I wanted to keep on watching.

    The tone of this film is light and  (annoyingly) straddles the line of being a spoof…
