People, we’re playing a game…
Fun is not the word I’d use here. This is a depressing film in a lot of ways. Not least of which is that I’m pretty sure it’s an allegory for our dysfunctional international aid system.
Not a lot of jump scares, and I’ll tell you, there is nothing supernatural about this horror. But horror there is.
Art: In parts.
The acting is probably the strongest part of this movie. John Heard is a genius. Brittany Snow, Enver Gjokaj, Charlie Hofheimer, and Sasha Grey all make this a much better movie than it would be without them. I don’t think this would work with weaker actors – the story isn’t all that compelling on its own. Lawrence Gilliard Jr was underutilized.
