Watched the film tonight and was very let down. The cinematography was perfect but failed to deliver with the story. Its a very "now" message highlighting the fact that racism is alive and strong. If you watch for the horror aspect you'll be extremely unimpressed. Its disheartening to see so many films with potential succumb to the woke culture. My 4 star rating was purely for cinematography and the score. I cant stress how perfect the opening 20 minutes are and how beautiful the final song aligns with the struggle the heroin faces. The acting was over the top and unbelievable. The story failed itself in too many ways to count, but the one way that mattered more than anything is that it hammers the same logic any woke film does. White is bad, black is power and the patriarchy is evil. If you don't mind hearing that message in every movie you watch, THIS is the film for you. For those of us that seek originality and good story telling, we'll probably give nothing more than 5 stars.
