Extremely creepy with a really well-journeyed and realistic celebrity-obsessed world and a great sense of atmosphere. The main character was very engaging for the flat way of speaking he had and while you would be right to expect some gore and mild body horror from a mpvie with this description there is nothing too stomach-churning for a regular horror fan.
Really loved this. Had instant Black Mirror vibes instantly. Really interesting idea for a film. Would definitely recommend!
Crazy and all kinds of messed up! Definitely not a horror movie but a horrific take on what celebrity worship and fame. It’s a slow paced movie and very well acted. But lacking a little punch.
What a messed up film 😂
