    ★★★½

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Octavia Spencer, I want to see more of you in horror films. Please and thank you.

    If I'm being honest, I'm happy I waited to rent this movie because it fell short of my expectations. I do think it was a great revenge story that acts as a reminder that sometimes we are the monsters and sometimes... we create the monsters. Wheaton's Law, people.

    It just felt like Octavia carried this entire movie.

    That extra .5 in my star rating is a 'thank you' for no dogs dying.

    ★★★

    Did I love it? Yes.

    The only reason why I'm giving this 3 stars instead of 4+ is because while the production, visuals and story are great, I can't ignore the imbalance of actor performances.

    However, this is the type of movie I'd turn on in my down time and I'll be adding it to my movie collection. I look forward to seeing more from Chelsea Stardust.

    And for the love of Baphomet, tip your damn delivery drivers!

    Beautiful and heart-wrenching.

    I am officially a Florence Pugh fan after seeing Midsommar. Her performance broke me down with how she was so in tuned with the character's pain.

    2 out of 5 stars is me saying, "Why did I find this movie entertaining?"

    This movie isn't to be taken seriously despite being structured that way.

    It's a clear nod to Jaws with added technology and 'oh sh*t' moments, but for those who can't brush aside logic for a little under 2 hours, you're going to spend most of your time pointing out all of the faults because...well, they're there.

    Despite only 2 out of 5 stars, if this were on TV I'd probably watch it through. Simply put, it's fun action.
