Half this film's script is just Alan screaming "Elisabeth!"

Dennis Hopper is especially rapey in this. Maybe he channeled this energy for his role in Blue Velvet?

"Yo, check out this emoji!" said no sane person ever.

Also, "High Five" has to be one of the most deplorable characters I've seen in a long time.

Contrary to the previous reviewer, I thought this was really well done and quite enjoyable. Highly recommended if you enjoy haunted houses.

Much more interesting for its overt references to the
Illuminati and McConaughey's lesser-known usage of "alright, alright, alright," than anything else. After that, the movie is pure trash.

Oh and it is more commonly known as "Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Next Generation"

Just because this deals with an important historical event and is beautifully shot does not make it any less torture porn. It's too bad, because this could have been really great.

I am convinced that if Russ McKamey weren't running a "haunted" house, he'd be a serial killer. The man is definitely a sociopath.

This film is literally apologia for pedophilia. Not surprising that it's produced by the Weinsteins.

The problems I have with this doc-- namely some gray area journalism relying almost exclusively on heresay-- are overcome by how damn compelling the story is, as well as the volume of batshit crazy interview material.

Considering the film is a fictional documentary, I would say it does a damn job at what it does. It maybe did too good of a job in fact.

The plot is like American Beauty meets Crimes & Misdemeanors.

It's not nearly as bad as people are making it sound. In fact, I thought it was rather enjoyable, if you understand what you're getting into. And let's be honest, you're smart enough to know what kind of movie this is ahead of time.

The set design is incredible and maybe even flawless. The acting isn't bad either. In fact, Jennifer Lawrence has some very subtle moments early on which are well-acted. Sadly, the writing doesn't do her any favors. Quite the opposite, in fact.

The writing is atrocious. There is no sympathy to be had for any of the characters, even Jennifer Lawrence. Everyone is deplorable, with the exception of her, who just doesn't do anything remarkable and distinctly lacks self-respect.

The allegory also self-implodes on its own pretension. Is Javier Barden supposed to be God / Yahweh / the Creator? Who then, is Jennifer Lawrence? A faithful follower, sure, but not one worth respecting. Maybe that's the point. It's hard to tell. There is no vengeful pay-off, only sadism, masochism, loud noises and nonsense.

I expect more from Darren Aronofsky.

Not that Murphy is a pretentious person, but the interviews were a lot of nonsense. I kind of just wish they would have... you know... shut up and played the hits.
