    There's a good movie in the ideas Simien is exploring here, but it is not this movie and it's probably not a horror movie. That being said, Elle Lorraine is the real deal and I appreciated all that Simien gave her to do here. Her performance was more than enough to keep me engaged through the generic scares and impenetrable lore.

    There’s a chaotic energy to this thing that I really dug - a savage kind of mayhem that felt genuinely dangerous in a way that mainstream American animation rarely does. And I liked that it was used not just for the sake or comedy or adrenaline’s sake. It felt reflective of both the time and place that’s being depicted - and to the inner turmoil that Meriden is experiencing.

    Imaging a Brave/Frozen shared universe where Meriden crosses the North Sea and wreaks some havoc  in Arendelle.

    Like if Damien Chazelle had studied murder in college instead of jazz.

    The first shot of Celine in the bookshop. The car ride when they nearly touch each other. The look on Celine's face as they walk up the stairs. Nina Simone.

    The whole f'ing thing.
