Saw it the other night and absolutely loved it. Another masterpiece by Ari Aster, director of Hereditary.

Anyone else watch it?

Robtard
It's on my to-watch list, will likely check it out in the next week or so

Patient_Leech
I still need to see Hereditary.

So I'm going to try to get on these two soon.

hereditary was 2nd fav movie of last year!

Patient_Leech
I'm hoping to get around to watching this in the coming days/weeks..

Watched this last night, was decent, but nowhere near as good as Hereditary. This lacked the suspense and constant unsettling feeling.

Indeed. I actually hated this the first time I saw it, but I ended up watching it again with a more open mind, and I liked it a lot more upon my second viewing, I made the mistake of going into this expecting more Hereditary. While not as good as it's predecessor, It's still a unique story with amazing cinematography.

Hereditary is probably my second favorite horror film I've seen this year, if this is even half as good it should be worth a watch.

Robtard
The first is?

The first is? 1922, starring Thomas Jane on Netflix.

Robtard
It's that good? Nice.

I'll try and check it out this weekend.

I'll try and check it out this weekend. Like Hereditary there is a purveying ambiguity during the film's runtime concerning how much of what we are apparently seeing is real or the result of a damaged mind's warped perspective. Jane also kills his role, and while the circumstances surrounding his character's situation are unfathomably bleak and terrible he ultimately has only himself to blame. It's also a period piece which I like, and like Hereditary where at no point do things seem safe, in 1922 the atmosphere of suffering never leaves it.

Patient_Leech
Yeah, 1922 is good, too. thumb up

So I finally watched this and it's great.

I think I actually found it more haunting than Hereditary because it seemed more real, no silly supernatural element that took me out of the story.

This director is... amazing.

Robtard
Aster is apparently going to take a short break from horror for his next film (maybe two).

Still, with him and Peele currently doing horror films proper service, we're in good hands.

Cool. Yeah, I was actually thinking I'd like to see him do something besides horror.

Yeah, I just think Peele needs to bring in other writers. Us was beautifully done, but didn't really make sense.

Robtard
I enjoyed 'Us', but it's inferior to 'Get Out', lacked the wit and humor combined with horror of the first film.
