This movie is incredible!

I don’t think I’ve liked a movie so much since Hereditary was released in theaters in 2018. This movie truly got under my skin, and scared the living hell out of me. The cinematography (as you can expect from an A24 horror film) is top notch. The acting, directing, and writing is all perfect. It’s slick, psychological, scary, and entertaining a the same time. This is a slow burn movie, so it’s not for everyone

Too much sex
