backup-50362 - 8 January 2023 If your characters are unlikeable, who's sticking around to watch it? This movie has the most generic goofy movie dad, the most generic silent and overly-serious, annyoing wife, annoying daughter... Then they go to the beach with another family with a generic goofy dad, a generic drunken wife who "thinkgs about murdering him sometimes" and tells him "I hate you" as he's serving her drinks like a simp...
Am I meant to sit through the whole movie when nobody in it is likeable? What's my motive to waste time watching this, exactly?
And no, even if you're one of those ridiculous goofs who's blind to this annoying modern movie trope of stupid, cartoonishly unlikeable family characters, the rest of this "horror" movie isn't anything new or good either.
Just cheap and goofy low-budget horror stuff... But no, I ain't sitting through this whole thing and listening to insufferable characters go through their mundane lives any longer to see if they live or die. Eventhough based on how generic and bland this movie is, I can totally guess who'll die in the end, if anyone must.
deesestone - 20 November 2022 Incomprehensible Didn't like it, didn't understand it, found it boring rather than scary, maybe if I watched it again and didn't fall asleep during it I would have a different opinion, and oh yes, after having read the various explanations on-line. Because call me stupid but I needed those explanations to understand the bare plot, aside from the different themes which I didn't get at all. I much preferred Get Out because it was tightly knit as a plot and the hints came together at the end. And the good guys win, the circle of safety is thinly drawn but it is there. Sorry, too complex for me to the point of boredom.
