A bumbling and docile plot crammed with a cast of unlikable characters suddenly cranks up the speed tenfold for the last 10 minutes in hopes of executing an edgy and twisty ending. While noteably its gore and tone land well in spatters throughout its runtime, the rest of the movie makes sure any merits fall apart by the rolling of the credits.

I recommended this film for me, my friend and her family to watch as I remember being so shocked by it's ending, I'm remembered it being a great film. I looked forward to seeing it again knowing the ending before and hoping to understand it better but I was just left angry. It seemed to make even less sense this time around and I had to Google the plot of the film to understand it. I like it's style and tone so the lack of satisfaction I felt with it's plot is just disappointing.

I was very much enjoying this movie up until the end. They really lost me with how they tied things up. I didn't find it shocking. It felt almost tacked-on and over the top. I figured there must be more, so I read some theories people had about the movie and none were satisfying. With that said, the first two acts of the movie were very interesting. It's still worth a watch. Unfortunately, it lost quite a few points from me because of the ending.
