Nope. Not a chance I stayed awake for this. Two and a half hours!? I mean Hereditary was good but jesus... two and a half hours!? And a 3-hour director's cut? Just to make a not-as-good version of Wicker Man?
OK maybe I'm being harsh. I did enjoy this... many things about it good, the film has a level of cohesion that's admirable, and no doubt a lot of time and effort were paid toward little details that all serve the narrative. But to me the poster sums it up perfectly: flowers and crying. That main girl cried. And there were flowers.
So I have mixed feelings about it. It's a good movie in that it's very well made and serves as an interesting horror movie that's not just, like, people mysteriously die when they install an app on their phone. Both on the other hand, it doesn't travel far enough away from its inspiration so I can't help but see it in Wicker Man's shadow.
