Solid indie style film
Brilliant film, twisted as hell, and somewhat disturbing, but OMG I loved it. McConaughey was a creepy sick puppy, and as scary as hell. Great script and acting throughout. Not for the faint hearted that is easily offended or upset. Karen’s do not watch this, the manager doesn’t want to hear your complaints.
Absolutely disgusting. Would never watch this movie ever again. Felt uncomfortable when Dottie was raped by joe. She was a 12 year old girl. Traumatising.
I really enjoyed this movie, I might go watch it again lol. So I’m giving it 3 skulls 💀
Messed up but have to say enjoyed it .....
