    I watched it this morning & there were a lot of gaping plot holes. Why not set up loud speakers everywhere & blast music or any noise for that matter to confuse them? Then they can sit on top of the grain bin & pick them off with a rifle. They could have easily figured out a way to kill them in a year & 3 months. I liked it but it was a stupid premise.

    I thought it was decent.

    As a horror buff, I can say the best horror movie of 2018 was Hereditary. Mandy was better too (rare good Nick Cage movie)

    I just watched it at home and I thought it was really good. It was totally a allegory for parenting while being a pretty good horror film

    yeah... listened to a podcast with Krazinsky a couple days ago about this film and he approached it with the idea of making a family drama first and foremost, wrapping it around supernatural circumstances. Thought he did a really solid job and was bummed when i heard he was going right back to the well to make a sequel instead of seeing another original idea from a young filmmaker who had a blank check after a very successful critical and box office winner on his first time out.

    Neat little film. I'm not really a fan of horror, but I enjoy a fresh story like this, regardless of how ridiculous it is.

    This was great.

    just saw the first one recently since part two is coming out. pretty fun movie. it did have plt holes, sure, but it was a fun watch. I'm not to thrilled about a sequal with the changes that happened in the first one but those changes were powerful and I am sure I will watch it someday.
