excellent
9 August 2014 | by See all my reviews

I sat in my living room debating for almost a half an hour whether or not to rent this movie. why? solely because of all the morons who left such horrible reviews about under the skin on IMDb. in all honesty I am glad that this happened to me. it has taught me a very valuable lesson. when absolute idiots are not spoon fed an obvious, "in your face plot," their butt holes will suffer some sort of allergic reaction and swell to twice their normal size and they will inevitably end up on IMDb, spewing absolute nonsense.

I am not an art lover. Nor do I think I am more intelligent than someone who did not appreciate or understand this movie. So save it for the peanut gallery. I simply enjoyed this film, a lot. So sue me.

The plot is original. The acting is literally unscripted throughout a majority of the film (how? you ask. well you will just have to find out). And yes, Scarlett was phenomenal in her role. I didn't find a second of this movie to be boring or unnecessary. This film is genuinely terrifying. It is downright bizarre and at times extremely upsetting on a mental level.

Rent this movie, it is just that good!
