Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1 ):
Kids say (3 ):

With monstrous villains, goofy one-note heroines, and enough over-the-top murderous action to satisfy the most ardent horror fans, the filmmakers aim first and foremost for shock, awe, and laughs. And they succeed in generating all three... to a point. All of the actors seem to relish their bizarre roles. Premier special makeup effects artist Olivier Afonso directs his first feature film with gusto and skill. With its potential for "midnight screenings" (the film won both "Best Kill" and "Best SFX" at the 2018 Grimfest Awards), it could be one of those little features that attains cult status. Still, there's an aura of sadistic malice that underscores the story. It's hard to watch such misogynist violence and ugliness even when the victims rise up to the challenge.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
