Nice to revisit this one. Enjoyed it much better the second around time. It drags at times and the antics of the teenaged daughter are annoying to say the least. Still the movie has pop and pulp.

Well to be honest, I only watched this movie because I saw that one Rick & Morty episode I now have to rewatch because there were probably references to this movie.

As for the movie itself: Interesting idea, kinda meh though.

I had no expectations when watching this film. I didn't even know that the majority disliked the film until I came on here to log my viewing. I definitely didn't hate the film. It isn't my favorite movie of all time but as far as the horror genre goes I could see myself re-watching this later down the road. The movie did have it's irritating bits. Mostly that irritating little kid. Come on now! That kid is directly responsible for almost all of the tragedy. I hope he lives out his life with PTSD and eventually dies in the purge himself.
