Wild to say the least
22 March 2019 | by rachelsmithliverpoolSee all my reviews

This film is wild. It has unexpected moments and unnecessary moments. It's so weird and wacky I kinda like it. The beginning of the film was kinda slow but it allows characters the time to show their true colours. The actual thought behind why the town turned on these girls is still up for debate but overall it was an interesting concept. There was many shocks and it was a film that didn't hide from many different problems concerning the world today. I believe the film also took inspiration from the Salem witch trials as they have similar aspects. The cinematography was something I quite liked however as some points the movie could have sped up. I think that this movie covers some very necessary topics and this movie will not rate very highly because society does not want the world to see movies like this. It contains topics like homophobia, transphobia, rape, sexual assault and drug use. These are topics extremely relevant today and it shows the extremities of some communities and how social media can be so extreme
