Pretty Sure Everyone is Missing the Snark
1 October 2017 | by diablolitaSee all my reviews

More than anything, the film is a commentary on the area (Willits, or just Northern CA in general). Perhaps there's something extra in the film for those of us familiar with that area, but seeing some of the less than glowing reviews below I'm pretty sure that everyone is just missing the snark. The film is incredibly well written and directed, and contains a fair bit of wry, intellectual humor and wit hidden by the gory, overwrought plot. This is why it gets 10 stars out of me. I don't even like horror (but I do like aliens), but I kept incredulously laughing through the whole thing because of sub-commentary that runs through it.
