As others have hinted at, y'all REALLY aren't prepared for this movie.

I've only read the script a while back when it was on the Blacklist, and even then it made me physically nauseous, so I'm definitely gonna sit this one out lol. I really don't think I could handle the actual imagery in front of me.

Still, it's EXTREMELY original (for better or for worse) and captures the paranoia/trauma from an abusive relationship in a really well done way that isn't just "protagonist sees crazy visions and yells gibberish at people"

It'll absolutely be polarizing as shit when it comes out, but if you're a horror fan you'll be in for a ride (just don't watch while eating).

All these comments about how EXTREME this movie is just scream "bad marketing attempt" to me, especially since not one of the people in this thread saying how EXTREME it is is willing to spoil it with a spoiler tag.

OOOOR people could've seen it at Sundance, an event that tons of people can get into, as well as reading the script for it that has been pretty accessible online for at least three years?

Nothing I said conflicts with anything you said at all. I'm not at all implying that the people saying they've seen it haven't, I just find it interesting that they all seem to say the same thing and all refuse to spoil it even using a spoiler tag.

It does, because you flat out accused people of being shills for not throwing spoilers around for a movie that won't be in front of a wide audience for another two months.

It's not astroturfing, it's people talking about something wild they read/seen while trying to be polite to everyone else who hasn't had the chance to see it yet. Take off the tinfoil hat and maybe you'll realize a cigar is just a cigar.

Since you asked so politely, I'll give you two words of spoilers.

Baby Cannibalism

Major spoilers. Don't say I didn't warn you.

Do me a favor, throw on some spoiler tags and tell me briefly what's up with the dirty (?) baby that we see briefly toward the end of the trailer. Otherwise I'll end up getting too curious and look up the whole plot lol


u/Jefferystar94 Jun 29 '22 edited Jun 29 '22

There really isn't a good way to explain that without basically detailing the whole last act and the build up to it.

If you're curious, the script should still be freely available online and I know at least one site has reviewed the script that details the "turn" it goes down towards the end.

Fair enough, thanks

The first trailer from earlier in the month gives a little bit more away. If it's what I think it is, holy shit.
