    A lot of fun. There were a few slow parts, but, overall I thought it was just about as good as the first one.

    I liked this film, overall, though I feel like it suffered through some very quick and off-kilter tonal changes. It is, for the most part, a somewhat dour mystery/drama, but there are these moments of dark humor that punctuate it that almost make you wonder if you should be laughing at what was said or done, even though it's obviously a joke. Jesse Plemmons was a nice surprise here, even though he has a fairly small role.

    Wow... I can't recommend this film, in general, because it is RELENTLESS and graphic. That being said, I feel like the story is tight, and director Jeremy Saulnier does an AMAZING job at keeping the tension steady throughout. Understated performances from Patrick Stewart and Imogen Poots are a hugely welcomed surprise, though everyone does a great job.

    I don't want to give this film five stars, but I feel like I have to. It does things that very few others are able to accomplish, and it does them very well.

    Word's can't really describe it. It's a cinematic experience unlike any other.
