    ★★★

    Meh. First two-thirds of the movie are pretty good, but gets lame and predictable in the third act.

    The narrative was promising in its character development, approach to what appeared to be either chaos magick or Wicca and balance between lighthearted edginess and serious coming of age themes.

I already fell in love with it the second the opening credits started rolling, why with standardized test questions and diagrams all revolving around death, murder and self-harm. Might be one of my favorite intro sequences of all time now and it's a pretty good testament to how creatively fucked up the whole damn thing is.
