Trivia

Jack Reynor was chosen to play the brother because the filmmakers felt his mannerisms and voice reminded them of Bill Paxton, an actor the directors had wanted to work with but never had the chance to due to his unfortunate death in 2016. See more »

Surprisingly good
8 November 2018 | by lizshotterSee all my reviews

I really liked this film, it had a great theme of family and how the characters deal with loss and conflict. It has an amazing ending and I hope that there will be more films as it has a lot of possibilities. James Franco is great at playing sleazy bad guys and he really delivers in this (with the exception of the "walkman story"..that was a bit uneccessary and a bit cringy). I loved the special effects, they were subtle in places and I was glad it wasn't a film bloated with cgi and was relevant to the story. The lead actor was brilliant and a promising young actor and who doesn't love a bit of Zoe kravitz in sparkly underwear? She plays a really good part in this but sometimes I tire of the " tart with a heart role", women are capable of so much more, but she played it well.
