This descent into madness may happen at a pace too slow for some, but I thoroughly enjoyed the agonizing torment of this dysfunctional family.

Wow...This movie was extremely : creepy, disturbing, and very scary. I have seen MANY scary movies over the past 45 years. This was one of the best for me. The only way I made it all the way through was because it was still daylight. I don't think I could have watched it in the dark. Quite impressed.

Dreary and disturbing movie that will get under your skin if you let it. The whole atmosphere is one of dread to the point where I was feeling uneasy as a viewer. Akin to A24 vehicles such as "Hereditary" and "The Witch" (two of my more recent favorite horror films). If you are expecting the run-of-the-mill Hollywood dreck with events unfolding in a formulaic manner then skip this one - you will not like it. However if you can appreciate a slow burn and accept that not every plot point has a clear answer then you will find much to enjoy here. Note the ending seems to divide both proponents and detractors, but I found it to be quite satisfactory. To say any more is to spoil the film, so give this one a chance and watch with an open mind.
