I have to say the main character was as dumb as a box of rocks!!!! Wanted to jump through the screen and coldcock him a bunch of times! I mean really?? Not an ounce of humanity for the one that got killed or a lick of sense enough to get that he'd be next. He let other people get killed trying to cover for and still be available to some psycho scumbag.
Beautiful, suspenseful, and such a silent masterpiece.
While I personally wouldn’t call it horror, the story was absolutely gripping. Story of a gay man so desperate not to be alone that he risks mortal danger was especially powerful to me.
So effing good
I haven't seen this much dick in decades. It seemed like a '70s movie but it wasn't. Not scary, just sad.
