This one was really good. It's about a home nurse who talks to god. She's paired with a woman dying of cancer then things go from there.
I think this is the only movie that had a jump scare that worked on me... really there were several moments that were either legitimately scary or deeply unsettling. In an escalating act of contrition or self-flagellation or whatever, there's a scene where Maud puts thumbtacks in her shoes that made me feel a visceral body reaction. That and the ending is really great. And there was a lot of ESG and post-punk music that I dig.
Afterward I had more than an hour wait before the midnight movie then the next morning was extra early to be done in time for the closing night party. i didn't feel like sacrificing that much sleep to see this movie VFW so I skipped it and went home. It's the only slot I missed. Had I known that I tied my movie count on this site with last year because of it, I probably would've stayed... but oh well, I got plenty of sleep, didn't get sick (for the first year in recent memory), and don't regret it.
