I loved Shults’s previous movie Krisha but this just did nothing for me. A “horror” movie totally embarrassed by the word horror. Luckily I like the cast and, yeah, it’s well made, just so not my bag. I hate this modern trend of trying to elevate the genre with really considered, slow-zoom cinematography and quiet, dread-riddled and practically uneventful plotting. Yes, young filmmakers, we get it. You all love Kubrick and think The Shining is the proper way to make a horror movie. But even Kubrick knew when to have Jack Nicholson swing an axe into somebody’s gut. Get your fucking hands dirty already.
