    At 2 1/2 hours I could argue it's a little too long, but I don't have the energy. It was just the escape I needed after Hurricane Irma. Not terrifying, but spooky, with wonderful performances by all the young actors. Especially the fat kid. Looking forward to Chapter 2.

    Amazing how many LGBT films get made on a small budget and appear, then disappear, at film festivals. This one's too slow, and it's only 80 minutes. Still, out of this excess some great directors, writers and actors will no doubt emerge.

    Openly gay teen and his parents travel from California to Nebraska for a family reunion. Gay teen wants to come out to the family. Parents think it's a bad idea. You're preppred for a touching coming- our tale. And then, like "Psycho," this movie takes off in a very different, VERY creepy direction. Still trying to shake the icky feeling.
