I’ve seen this at least 6 times it gets better every time I recommend it to everyone
Price of fame and ambition. To succeed you must kill the old you and be reborn. Forget everyone and everything you ever knew. New beginnings awaits you. Loved it
Good movie, held my attention. Good soundtrack, and I liked the retro horror font they used on the credits. The one guy really reminded me of ray wise.
great slow burn horror. starts slow and comes off as a bit amatuerish, but the 3rd act pays off hugely.
Normally, I give films a few minutes to hook me in before turning it off. This definitely had my attention from the beginning. The metaphorical take on the stress of making it big in Hollywood, abandoning a sense of self-worth to do "whatever it takes", and those that would take advantage (physically or emotionally) of those trying to make their way really hit home. Even the gory parts weren't as gut-wrenching as the implications of those at the top of the fame game exercising their abuse on others. This film was the right kind of disturbing in every sense. Very, very good!
