K and I were just walking about why we love 80’s period piece movies so much, and I think I’ve gotten to the bottom of it - they capture everything I love about the 80’s, without the downfalls of the ACTUAL 80’s. And this movie did not disappoint. From the opening scene I loved the atmosphere, the colors, the clothing. I loved this movie. It was slow, and quiet, and atmospheric. I felt stress! Once I actually found out what was going on, though? Not as scary. The movie had a perfect ending, which was unfortunately ruined by them adding on just a little extra to add a sort of…continuation? Potential sequel? Anyway, total recommend. This was an awesome movie.
