At the beginning of the movie when the father is in the store getting eggs, he closes the cooler door and there are 3 rows of milk, each row having a different color lid, green, red and yellow. Indicating 3 different types of milk, like Vitamin D, 2% and skim milk. But at closer look, all the milks have the same 2% label on the front of them, they should all 3 have different labels to coincide with the different color lids. Then again when Logan and his mother are shopping at the Market when they first get to the mountain, Naomi get milk from the cooler and again the milks have red, light blue and dark blue lids, but all the labels are the same again for all the milks, which is 2% Milk.

Felt let down at the end
20 January 2018 | by mahabouraoud-09421See all my reviews

I don't normally write movie reviews but this movie propelled me to. I was thoroughly enjoying this movie. The actors were fantastic. Loved the scenery, the house. I was enjoying some great pizza, all was great. But then the entire 3rd act happened. The act that needed to be the strongest. I am not going to reveal any spoilers so I'm just going to say that the ending was unbelievable weak, one of the worst endings I have ever seen. I felt like everyone just gave up towards the end of the movie and rushed to throw a weak ending together. Who was the killer? The hot water heater guy was shaped an awful lot like the killer. I don't know, I just feel completely let down by this ending.
