The first thing I thought when I read the synopsis was that it might be derivative of Misery. While there is a certain level of homage to that movie, this is something different entirely, and it benefits from that. The movie left me wanting more in all the good ways a movie can. It was a movie that proves to me were continue to live an a golden age of horror.
Solid story telling of a tortured soul. Definitely a slow burn but the explosion justifies the wait. Awesome performances. Does right by its predecessors.
Wow what a beautiful twisted movie !
Fantastic and refreshing film. A slow burn, but I love horror that builds up over time. The characters are all interesting with their own personalities. Very believable.
