Doesn't Deserve the Bad Reviews
22 May 2019 | by arfdawg-1See all my reviews

It's not your typical horror movie with puppets. It's got some great writing by S. Craig Zahler which elevated the movie the way Shane Black can do.

I thnink people are giving this bad reviews because it takes a while to get to the action. And frankly, I liked the beginning character development more than the horror part.

It was smart and funny and different.

Make sure you see Zahler's other movies! Especially one of my fav films of 2019 -- Dragged Across Concrete
