A certain segment of the population are very salty
It's not your typical scary movie, but it certainly depicts real life horror. I knew going into the movie not to trust the reviews. I've often found that movies made by African-Americans about African-Americans and played by African-Americans upset a certain segment of the United States population and those individuals are very vocal and tend to write nasty reviews. So, I knew this would be no different. As the movie progressed, I saw why those particular individuals were salty. You'll see reviews that say this is "fear mongering" or creating racial tensions (as if they didn't already exist). One review even said it misrepresents the past. These reviews are laughable and quite disingenuous.
If you're not among the salty population, then you may just enjoy this. But, and let's be honest here, if you believe the confederate flag is a symbol of your heritage, you're going to be salty AF watching this.
