Aaron Michael’s review published on Letterboxd:
Entertaining, even if it's not entirely successful as either a horror film or coming-of-age story. The elements of both that work are great, but it's so constrained by sheer volume - of characters, of plot, of """themes""" - that it lacks some of the connective tissue that would have made it really, truly great.
Still, I enjoyed myself. It does more right than it does wrong. There were moments when you could see slivers of what Fukunaga's version could have been, but overall it's still a strong adaptation.
