    Still not as engrossing for me as I wish it were, it's definitely not a film where I "care" about these characters or what happens to them, and it's not at all a scary horror movie (though I maintain it's not really trying to be).

I got slightly antsy during the last twenty minutes or so but still enjoyed this portion. Damn, yeah, this was pretty wonderful.

    Damn, now I'm all sad and spooked.

    Annoyingly took over three hours to finish this but it felt like years (but in a good way?), it's so emotionally exhausting. My eyes and heart hurt.
