My friends are using words like "psychological" and "thrilling" to describe this film. Meanwhile, I had a deeply horrifying experience. I was sincerely uncomfortable for most of the run time. That being said, I really wanna see it again. Based off the first viewing, I can't think of a film that scared me more
