While this movie is not perfect, it clearly is trying to sacrifice realism for more escapism. This style of a horror movie is probably one of the better types in the genre. The movie does not contain jump scares and instead provides elements of horror through expertly crafted suspense.
Some elements and actions the characters take can feel extreme at times, and the situations the characters are in seems to escalate very quickly. The beginning of this film feels almost like a normal high school, however, and is a nice effect to go from that to a more grim reality.
Another thing is that the main character Lucas, feels almost comically gifted, and in an unironic way. I feel like they should have scaled back on how they try to make the main character seem gifted.
Overall, the movie is good, and I would recommend it to people that want to watch a Horror movie that doesn't have any jump scares.
The movie was good but seemed to leave huge gaps in a possible storyline. The story seems too fast-paced. The movie can keep your attention, but it mostly has an easily forgettable storyline. It is also difficult to keep track of all the names of the characters during the film, so when they are referring to another character that is not on-screen, it feels difficult to know who they are talking about. What was enjoyable about the movie was its ability to feel like a small snapshot in time, and feels like you are watching a small segment of someone's life. Another problem that I have with this movie was that it didn't seem to do much in the movie that would have made the ending make sense. I think the ending was a good one, but it doesn't feel like what would have happened based on all of the movies that came before it. It didn't seem to focus very much on the main character's struggles at all. I don't believe that I would recommend this movie to anyone.
This movie has a very interesting plotline that works well. The movie is particularly enjoyable for its inclusion of an LGBTQ+ main character where the main plotline was not surrounding them being LGBTQ+. The movie at some times feels like the two main characters seem to be able to get away with a lot more than they should. The story also explores more than the main plotline, and also focuses on Ellie's roots and her home life with her single-parent father. This is a great movie for those who like Coming of Age story!
