Although this film is classified in the horror genre, it plays more like a suspenseful drama. This film shows that director Ti West has the potential to move beyond the horror genre, as so many other directors have done before him.
The film has a ticking time-bomb quality that pays off in the accelerating violence of the breathless final act, which is more grim than gory, with the high body count one would expect from a movie inspired by Jonestown.
