So basically she tried to be more human at the end and was more vulnerable and that was her demise basically what she did to those men hunting and picking lonely men happened to her !
What did I just watch?!!! Seriously, wtf did I just spend my time viewing ? Just another bloody trope is what. If you just wanna see another iteration of a woman using her sexual power over men with a repetitive soundtrack, one song over and over, then go ahead and waste your time on this piece of crap. I used to love Scarlett but please, she could not carry this movie. Sad. And very boring.
All I can say is: "Good fucking job!" I can't watch this movie. Something about it makes me incredibly anxious. I first watched it a couple years ago and nearly had a panic attack with the first lair sequence. At that point, I was done with it. I'm normally no pussy, but this one struck a nerve.
One of my favorite films. It leans into the idea of the unknown and that cosmic horror, with visuals that cut like a knife and subtly brilliant acting by ScarJo. Not to mention the anxiety-inducing score that creeps in when you're not looking. Watch this if you are willing to test out a unorthodox horror that willingly hides itself from you, goading your discovery.
