This is excellent work that expertly raised the tension to 11 for the first half and then hammers home the humor and horror for the second half.
It looks great on a budget that must have been small but doesn’t feel low-budget or schlocky at all.
Bill Skarsgard and Georgina Campbell manage to deliver the first half of the movie by themselves with no help from special effects or other cast members. It’s impressive work.
I especially enjoyed and laughed heartily at Campbell’s reaction to an early discovery.
And bonus points for Justin Long, who proves once again, that he can make a project with his singular abilities.
Those of you who love horror have probably already seen this. But if you missed it this is a solid little scare flick.
It nurses you along and then it rips your heart out.
