    This one was weird. Great action scenes in the first two acts that clearly inspired the Mission Impossible series. The third act is bonkers but feels a little dragged out (there’s only so much stealth walking that I can take in these movies). Great shots of the landscapes Bond visits as well. Buuut boring Bond girl unfortunately who sort of makes things stale every time she speaks.

    I’m a sucker for any horror movie about cults and I kind of loved everything about this?? Get over the annoying jump scares in the first half and you’ll find an insane second half that genuinely creeped me out. Beautifully shot and the acting was a lot better than most found footage films. Probably the best surprise of the year given how poor the reviews were.

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    The sexual abuse imagery becomes more apparent every rewatch. The elevator scene intercutting with Danny screaming is something that never really occurred to me as being symbolic of Jack’s abuse of his son until now. This sort of suggestive imagery in this film was always subconsciously apparent to me - especially during Jack’s “talk” with Danny - but it was always too disturbing for me to think about. This interpretation makes the ending much better imo with Danny finally escaping…

    I’ll never forget my reaction to that ending. Still holds up years later.
