    Nothing funny about it. Sad, gruesome, and depressing...
    If misery truly loves company, then there's a lot of miserable people who love this misery in this movie. You keep waiting for the story to arc. To find the bright side, the great moral lesson, with an uplifting ending to make it all worthwhile.

    But it just keeps digging with one hopeless negative thing after another. I think people who live in highly populated areas imagine those who live in rural areas are hopelessly miserable. It's projection.

    There may be some triggers one may not expect if certain violence upsets you. I won't give any details here, but you may want to look for them if certain things upset you.

    If a human brain doesn't find a pattern, it creates one.
    This is one of those movies which are hyped enough so you go and waste your two hours to know that the 8-9 star reviewers are the same people who find "Pair of glasses left on San Francisco's Museum gallery floor" to have some "deep hidden meaning" and praise the art; later to be find out that it was 16 year old boy who left it there for that specific purpose.

    If you ask them about the "deep hidden meaning", every one has come up with his/her interpretation of what the movie writer is trying to say, the only difference is; you will have to come up with your own interpretation because this movie doesn't have one.

    If you find hidden faces on the moon and think there are some ghosts out there staring at your miserable life, it not there. Its in your brain.

    The one star is my exaggeration to average out the "hidden meaning interpreters" reviews.
