D Edward’s review published on Letterboxd:
“If I wanted to hear from an asshole, I’d fart.”
I love how this movie feels. That low-budget cheap-o spookhouse aesthetic, a rural Halloween season vibe, and eerily-lit corridors stalked by hokey monsters and big bullies. This movie could succeed on feel alone, but I also really enjoy John Hawkes’ socially-backwards performance and his character’s struggle to hold onto his last shreds of sanity. The last thing he needed to hear was that a killer’s on the loose, and it turns everyone into a killer in his eyes. A fun premise executed with surprising skill. I’m into this one, though I totally understand it not appealing to everyone.
