A nasty little love letter to the classic Video Nasties with a psychological horror twist. A bit slow moving and spare, but the ending is well worth sticking with it.
This genuinely may be the worst film I have ever seen. It is definitely the biggest drop in quality between entries in a franchise I’ve ever witnessed.
The entire time watching the film, I felt like I had a brain injury.
Everything was overexplained while simultaneously being underexplained. Characters behave like no human has ever behaved, obvious plot points that anybody watching the film has understood for a half an hour or more are treated with suspense and then revealed…
Edit: I had previously rated this 2 stars and then thought about the fact that the movie has the absolute worst, most off-tone music drop I’ve ever seen, and to top it off the music used in the drop is by a multiple-time convicted pedophile.
Actually fuck this movie.
What happens when a movie is 100% self-important and 0% self-aware?
