Definitely not as into this as I was at release but it's been ages. Surprisingly watchable in spite of all of the flaws There's really no reason for this to have been as bloated as it was and that isn't even factoring in the extended version.

The ending was probably the most laughable thing I've seen in a horror film in a long time.

Already have at least 2 more viewings of this planned for the rest of the month (once on 10/10 or 10/11 in cinemas and the other the night or day that I go see Halloween (2018)) so maybe I'll have some more constructive thoughts later, sorry.
