I am very fond of horror movies for what they can tell us about society and I really liked this one.
First I was glad to see a black woman (and her black daughter) as leads. It is especially rare in horror and fantasy movies, so seeing this is pretty much what drew my attention first.
I think the actors are great, even the little girl, who's performance is impressive, and I really liked the atmosphere.
The themes the movie deals with are quite interesting. I saw a commentary on the lack of involvement by many fathers in their family, on the difficulties of raising a child and especially on the gap between how we view maternity and how it actually is. And even what I'm pretty sure is a commentary on being a disabled kid in an abled family.
However it's only what I saw and I'd really like to hear more about what the director wanted to say with that movie.
