I thought the ending was predictable....

There are plenty of jump scares, certainly many scenes that will make you cringe in disgust, and yet you will be on the edge of your seat in anticipation the entire time.

Neither fully encapsulating me with its proposed entertaining concept or boring me with its outlandish horror.

Brightburn offers amazing action, compelling acting, but basically no story to engage you.

Its just so MUCH talking and Denial its stupid about this kid that is boring.

Generic/Formulaic character drama supported by atrocious acting .

Opposite of a hero but as thrilling as one.

The deaths are intense and I loved how creative they were.

It is shocking, though what preceded it was a slow build to a tactic that proved futile against his preteen self.

It may be because it seems like it it trying to play to too many different genres when and therefore seems a little disjointed.

Save your money and just go watch something name-brand, I promise literally any iteration of Superman is better than this.

What's more exciting is the teaser at the end where others like Brandon show up on the scene.

Anyway, I really enjoyed it.

Don't waste your money, I wanted to walk out after only thirty minutes because everything was so poorly written and performed.

So predictable SAVE UR $ .

"Brightburn" has a simple but engaging premise, what if the classic Superman mythology was flipped, so that rather than being a hero, the child with unimaginable powers is becoming a monster.

A worth watching film!

Please don't waste any of your precious time.

Enjoyable .

The father / son relationship was really intriguing because the dad was willing to see through the kid's bs while the mother was not.

This film was beautifully disturbing and for the most part, unpredictable.

Exciting ride .

Really enjoyed it love the fact he didnt turn good at the end he just got darker and darker.

Unfortunately they took an awful approach on the writing of the movie which completely left it as a massive boiling pot of confusion.

Strong first hour, then quickly dissolved into a cliche-ridden slasher movie .

The cinematography, the score, acting & characters were pretty much definitely above average & enjoyable to watch.

Its a bit cliche when it comes to the mother always defending the son who doesn't always believe that something is truly wrong until the end.


Brothers Gunn as screenplayers showed that even most boring story in the world could be great and interesting with right tool.

But a bit slow at the beginning!

Exciting Thriller .

The ending to me is just mind blowing!

It was predictable .

👍 action packed 9/10 for me 👍

There was no real story told or characters to identify with, and the gore is laughably over the top, but it was a strangely and stupidly enjoyable way to pass the time.

more than half of the audience left in the middle, so did i, but i returned the next day to watch it all - just to make sure that it is the worst movie ever - and it is.

Bored of watching the usual supernatural characters, go for this one.

Quite thrilling, nice movie .

And don't expect any twist, it's as predictable as it gets.

Very entertaining and very interesting.

The alex jones skit at the end was confusing tho.

Literally one of the worst movie ever watched in my life.

So many plot holes and trite goings on.

Many things made this movie really enjoyable and entertaining.

But, sadly, instead of being anything meaningful, Brightburn opts to be a surprisingly unoriginal horror flick that barely explores its potentially engrossing concept.

Predictable, but very entertaining nonetheless.

While it certainly has its entertaining qualities, it fails to capture the horror of the third act because you never really grow to love Brandon as a normal kid anyway.

Yet, the movie has some areas that while entertaining are not the most ground breaking in terms of storytelling.

But overall definitely worth watching.

At first I was like "okay cool, lets kick it off right away," but about 30 minutes in and I was thinking "chill out, slow down, show more depth.

The central concept of Brightburn is great, and as the tension begins to ramp up, it's an enjoyable enough yarn.

Enjoyable horror .

The characters, though some were decently acted, were boring and I was unattached to whether they lived or died.

A good twist on the comic book hero genre, just a bit sad it falls into a cliche movie .

Honestly it was VERY entertaining, had you clamoring right to the end of the movie.

Too slow, plot holes all over the place.

Waste of time .

The movie is outrageously predictable....

Predictable in a bad way, hard to engage.

A character of the boy real disgusting and no storyline

This film is a slow burn at first until the final third part becomes a fiery chaos.

Brightburn is a good, entertaining turn on superhero movies.

Was really, just sort of dull and boring.

Please save your money and time ,I should this that yesterday,instead go to cinema waste my precious time and money,booooooo

Waste of time so I don't want to waste my words.

From beginning to end it is very cliche and leaves you with unanswered questions.

The action itself isn't too bad in the small amounts of screen time it gets, but again it gets bogged down because it tries to be a Cliched Horror movie at the same time instead of being something fresh and intriguing.

And that's not necessarily a bad thing because it does kind of subvert our expectations when it comes to what we should expect in a superhero origin story, but if this movie was slower paced and more of a dramatic character study than a horror film, it would've worked so much better.

I personally found it simply exciting at certain moments.

Superman's evil twin))) Not very clever,but very entertaining and gory.

The story was pretty predictable and not at all surprising.

Overall, I love how superhero and horror intersect in "Brightburn", it is definitely a perfectly entertaining film for fans of both genres!

Really slow pacing.

This is a thoughtless, dreary perversion of the Superman story.

i'm not overly impressed by the acting, and the plot speed are a little slow and the story have some holes here and there.

These powers, combined with confusion and angst at being deceived culminate in the rise of one of the greatest threats of humanity the world will have ever known.

There were scenes that worked well for me (the climax in the Breyer house is appropriately creepy and has some real emotional moments or even Kyle's nightmare in the middle) but there were other scenes that fell flat (the diner scene goes on too long and is too predictable).

I recommend this for a 2 hour cleverish, entertaining trip to the cinema.

And completely dull.

This movie's stupid, boring, and what else was I thinking?

The story is also predictable with nothing to sympathizes with.

Entertaining .

An evil Superman is very thrilling.

And it's pretty good to be honest I really loved how the tension was in the movie in general this is a really dark take on the superhero movie and it is really fascinating to actually see or to actually witness seeing a superhero getting powers like Superman and turning it to an evil Superman version, its actually very terrifying and this film did a phenomenal job at showing us what could happen if brightburn really does exist I love the tension I love the characters especially to the evil Superman I think that this is a a new Revolution in cinema history.

the worst movie of 2019 .

Deeply sinister, incredibly violent, and mindlessly entertaining, Brightburn takes every risk in all the right ways.

Rated only a 15, this has some moments that will see most people squint at the screen, not giving any of the story away, good acting, great effects, good build up pace and just an enjoyable movie on a whole.

I actually added it to my Spotify I enjoyed it that much.

Now Sony, the official propaganda arms of the Sore Losers' so-called government, launches another all-out insidious assault against our U.

What makes them fascinating that in another timeline, they could have gone bad and have become a threat to humanity.

Predictable, pretty, unoriginal, sub par effects and generally just an annyoing "What If" story.

While I suppose it doesn't exactly live up to its potential, it does deliver a decently entertaining experience peppered with competent, if expected, scare-sequences that doesn't pander to the preconceived expectations people tend to have of 'superhero' stuff.

The few devices the film has as predictable or really badly written and the film instils no feeling of interest or love for any of the characters, to the extent that other than the main characters name and his mothers name, you hardly remember anyone's name, if it was given at all.

There were so many throw in unnecessary details that made the movie muddled and confusing.

Waste of money.

A total waste of time and money ...

Bad characters, badly timed gore, predictable choices.

But instead it was much more exciting than any Superhero/ Supervillain Film I've ever seen!

Lame, predictable and no end .

a superhero movie worth watching.

Rage fueled pointless snuff film .

The story is so predictable if u ever superman movie.. you will see the same momentthe story is not ended well

So, I have completely enjoyed it.

Very Entertaining, Don't Listen To Critics .

Dont waste your time on this one.

It's just bad and so very boring.

Had you used the original idea to produce something worth watching ,then go ahead make as many sequels as you like.

The story of a kid with extraordinary powers and decides to use said powers for his own gain is truly suspenseful and will definitely keep your eyes glued to the screen in anticipation for what will happen next.

They had to put some propaganda in it.

This movie is very fun, thrilling, & exciting for the new generation...

And, it was so ridiculously slow-moving and absent of any subplot which only made it appear even more slow than it actually was.

In the end it leaves you feeling empty, as if you had just read a few pages of a pitch, and not a true script.

But the concept itself is such an exciting one.

I wouldn't waste your time watching this.

It could do with exploring Brandon's powers a little more and maybe show a little bit more F**cked up scenes of messy brutality in a slow and rising way.

IN a genre overfilled with gimmicks and cliché approaches though, the saturation level these films have taken.

Waste of time .

We all left the theatre, compared notes, and we all emphatically agreed that we should have walked out after the first five minutes.

It's incredibly basic to the point where it can feel dull at times.

The look and feel of his homemade outfit is on the money, think Michael Myers, Freddie, Jason etc.Elizabeth Banks plays her part as mother well, often torn between love and confusion as she tries to keep her family together.

Are this guys being paid to give star to this waste of time.

Exceeded expectations, provided intense scenes that were new and creative.

The movie is sooo predictable and the characters are written very dumb, although Elizabeth Banks carries the movie with her amazing performance.

Anyway the film was so dark and intense, especially with those killing scenes and how they've been portrayed in conclusion I would say that this is the DARKEST.

However, it becomes clear what he's capable of and the remainder of his rampages are relatively predictable once the evil surfaces.

This movie os waste of time, stay away if you don't want to laugh in a horror movie.

A little bit slow to set up the killing scene!

Interesting, exciting, stressful and creepy.

Flawed, but original and enjoyable anti-superman like film .

Most of the tension and suspense is pretty cliche but overall it's a pretty entertaining horror film that deserves a sequal

The lazy attempt at subverting our expectations kills of any chance of real surprise since the script obviously limits itself to 2 possible endings and they're both cliche as all hell.

Boring and really easy to guess whats happening all thrue the movie.

Surprisingly creepy, brutal and intense!

Then there's the shard of glass in the eyeball, which is drawn out by watching her slowly pull it out in excruciating pain, or the laser-eyes through someone's skull, which also takes ages just to make sure we savoured every ounce of suffering.

What a pointless mess .

I wouldent waste my time.

Boring .

Brightburn was thrilling, scary, and very dramatic at times.

A very entertaining slasher film.

I guess the fact that they only annoyed me after means I enjoyed it whilst watching.

The film is entertaining from start to finish and gets more intense as it progresses.

Too much of predictable superheroes movie have spoilt the cinema for me; Brightburn definitely breaks the pattern.

Easily Predictable and Poor Direction .

The plot is predictable and unpleasant, as are the majority of the characters, and even Elizabeth Banks doing her darndest to save it isn't enough.

But no, they instead make it a straight faced horror movie with the worn out cliche of characters dying one after another from the menace.

The visual effects are stunning!

Also that's another thing, the horror aspect was so cliche that I rolled my eyes everytime the camera looked at something and when the characters looked away and back again he was already near them.

Predictable .

Super fascinating!

nurture, but that conclusion only adds to the confusion.

It shows a alien from another planet in a very negative way ,plus the end absolutely pointless and disappointing.

If you ever got bored of watching superhero movies then you should go and catch this movie.

Slow start with a strong finish.

Still it's a entertaining film.

the pace of the movie is on the faster side, but i thoroughly enjoyed it.

The execution is poor and average and such concept gets wasted, this movie plays like an average horror movie and frankly it's quite boring

Every character has no depth, like a painting that is made with no message.

It's worth watching.

Mean-spirited violence with no story .

Dallatore's cinematography was often stunning, particularly when surrounded by red strobing lights.

Entertaining here and there .

There's some tension, a few effective set-pieces and it's generally enjoyable, too.

Plot was also a little predictable but enjoyable.

Make no mistake and go see this movie, it's short , brutal and enjoyable.

Brightburn is totally unique, unexpected and scary!

A darker and more sinister take on the superhero origin story and although it doesn't really do much with the origin story premise, I still enjoyed it.

An enjoyable, well-crafted thriller .

Complete waste of my time.

Giant yawn.

Dull and Generic .

And the leads all had compelling conflicts.

Very predictable, stupidly predictable.

It seems that once the spaceship calls out to him, it causes a switch to be flipped in his brain, simultaneously granting him his powers while compelling him to be evil.

Exciting as in how the story will continue and end.

There was an opportunity to take a lot of chances with this story, but it decides to settle for being a mildly entertaining flick.

There are several moments when I thought, yes, this is interesting,but please slow down so I can marinate in it.

The film had me during the first half, there were some pretty neat concepts here that just became predictable during the second half.

If youre done with cliche superhero movies, this is the one to watch.

Unfortunately, an engaging premise is about all that "Brightburn" has going for it.

I found I noticed how long the film took, rather than being immersed and given previous movies by the same director I felt a bit let down.

Overall an enjoyable experience & a bit irritating, because there's parts of it that could've been a lot better.

Everything to the last bit is predictable in the movie.

The concept, while fascinating, is never fully explored.

They feel like two real people caught in this fantastical story and despite Tori being just a little slow on the uptake (if you're asking who I identified with more, it was Kyle), I appreciated the screenwriters not making them so naive that it was unbelievable.


It's a nice concept and I sincerely hope it spawns a better film than this at a later point, but this is predictable, lazy and frankly quite dull given the subject matter.

The movie is dull, not scary at all, and the plot is so thin and underdeveloped that it made me feel sorry for whoever wrote it.

It had a few entertaining moments.

It's definitely worth watching.

A waste of time .

Enjoyable and Intriguing Despite Some Issues .

The story is slow and probably could've been over in a hour at the most.

It may seem to take itself a little too seriously at times, and at times provides certain unnecessary moments, but the film is undeniably entertaining and a heck of a interesting journey that is certainly unique and provides an experience you will never forget.

I dunno, its sort of good, but the script of some characters is mind boggling like hey you "be stupidly ignorant", when there's no reason.

You have to review horror movies a bit differently because most people go there for the antagonist, the kills, and for being overall entertaining.

So it makes for an incredibly boring movie.

I thought the acting was great and the story had me on the edge of my seat from the very beginning.

wonderfully entertaining

This movie is a waste of time and it takes a lot of wasted time for the sake of suspense that would inevitably fail in its execution.

There was practically no story in this pointless sequence of events around an adopted boy who appears to be some kind of powerful demonic alien.

The story was quite refreshing for what they were going for, the cinematography is downright stunning, the effects and violence was pretty great the acting was pretty stellar.

It was an exciting ride, thrilling and fearful.

to get to the moments to see those shine, we have to sit and watch the most bland and unforgivably BORING "everything else"!

Get away from Shazam and the Avengers and see a proper film that is a masterpiece and will genuinely have you sitting on the edge of your seat and squirming.

it was very predictable.

Fast paced climax, inventive destruction and kills, and a mix of horror/slow burn really make for a hell of a ride.

All of the characters are forgettable and underdeveloped, the plot is pointless and forgettable, and nobody will remember this movie was made in 2 years.

dull burn .

The story is predictable sure; if you saw the trailer then you know the premise.

Each scene is something intriguing taking place, thankfully!

The acting is great and the power depiction is accurate, but the story is extremely simple and predictable.

Mediocre uneven directing of a slow boringly crafted script.

This movie is incredibly boring and for a 7 million dollar budget, it really should not be this way.

Became formulaic and a bit predictable.

Pointless ...

This was unique, entertaining and kept me on edge the whole time.

Worst Movie EVER.

Brightburn is a wildly enjoyable film.

It is a tiresome, ill-tempered film, and one too lazy even to earn its dismal outlook.

I enjoyed it a lot.

I highly recommend it!

The whole mess devolved into your typical teen gore fest featuring a tiresome parade of bloody close-up deaths and maimings.

Dont waste your time in this one.

' But the potential of the premise was hijacked by bland character development and hackneyed jump scares.

Senseless, pointless and endless..It's a movie that doesn't know where it's going...

My only grumble was I felt the story fell into the trap of becoming a bit cliche (is it compulsory to have a self-rocking rocking chair in horror movies?

Enjoyable twist on the classic superhero genre .

definitely worth watching more than once, NEEDS A SEQUEL!!

When you watch the concept play out, you'll experience a predictable movie.

The movie is pretty predictable the second he finds out he's from outer space you already know what he's going to do.

Please don't waste your time .

Really its probably a 6.8 kinda movie but it was overall enjoyable to get this nice middleground in the grunge scene.

Entertaining enough .

The film features some quite grisly scenes that will keep you on the edge of your seat.

Worst Movie, Go watch The Boys on Amazon if you want a (evil) Superhero content that has substance.

Predictible but entertaining .

This movie is worth watching.

its fairly boring.

Although there were some good jump scares, overall it was just depressing and kind of boring.

The whole film is one colossal cliché and barely has a plot or a storyline development.

Bloody, interesting and unpredictable at some points with few great killing scenes!!

I mean, I wasn't absolutely horrified, but the tone was chilling and suspenseful, which is absolutely fine.

Save your money and your time....

I thought this was a fascinating, horrifying look at the Superman with a twist.

Worst movie i've ever seen .

I either expected it to be slow, dark and just terrifying, or a brutal, gory, fun movie.

That is waste of money and time and have no idea how Elizabeth Banks accepted to be a part of this ...

The movie its self unintentionally feels like a masculine answer to De Palma's original Carrie, there is a bit about coming of age and awakening a power rooted in darkness for a young outcast along with a foreboding feeling of unease and tension through out the first half of the film, which comes in at svelte hour and thirty minutes.

Everybody knows the beginning of this story and then it starts doing wreckage here and there (Jason Vorhees meets Superman/Man of Steel) but the movie is really bad and predictable, like a low budget horror movie.

The movie had some cool moments,but other than that it was a big waste of time, it sucked and the ending sucked even more.

What I loved about this film is that a lot of it was unexpected compared to your usual horror film that will have a happy ending in some way or another.

Don't waste your money on this.

Plain, boring, simple and predictable.

So with a wealth of previous storylines that would not be that familiar to the majority the cinema going audience, it is disappointing that the film is so relatively mainstream and predictable.

The story was dragged out and it was the vibe of 'Superman meets the Omen'

Generally, very nice horror story, with unexpected jump-scare scenes.

waste of time movie .

It felt too contrived and so basic.

Pls dont waste your time watching this...

The movie so closely mimics Superman that it runs into the exact same set of writing hurdles that very few writers who've tackled the character of Superman have been able to overcome, like how do you keep a character compelling if he is invulnerable to physical harm, has super speed, flies and shoots lasers out of his eyes at will?

Waste of my time especially when the rating makes no sense for viewers.

fell asleep and then woke up to finish the end of the story.

Pointless .

Seems pointless to fight such a strong being the whole movie, we just embrace the gory deaths.

The idea of having an evil Superman type of character, leaves open for an intriguing take on the superhero genre.

Just a predictable light horror movie.

A colossal cliché of an evil Superman .

A concept of a kid with Superman-like powers turning into a big bad villain sounded intriguing to me.

There's some effectively suspenseful scenes and considering the small budget, the cg is surprisingly good.

I must say I really enjoyed it.

This movie itself isn't that good though, pretty boring with underwhelming actors, character development and direction.

I was literally on the edge of my seat saying " No way" ...

this movie was great watch it ,,,its enjoyable

Movie is so poorly written & directed that it's confusing.

As I mentioned, the concept is endlessly intriguing.

Predictable and boring.

Certain moments in this film will definitely have you on the edge of your seat and cringeful stomach churning Gorey moment's.

There are no romantic interests, no friendships, no plot twists, no charm, no inspiration, and no point.

Foremost & firstly, this is an intriguing spin upon the mythos that Superman spearheaded into mainstream.

The majority of blockbusters always have such a predictable outcome.

For my problems I guess I would say it felt really rushed, somewhat predictable, and there was just something that felt off to me.

This 'what if' Superman story is a tense, intriguing descent into hell.

Now since we've seen the whole Superman thing it's kind of predictable what going to happen to Brandon, and I wish it just wasn't Superman powers and something a little more.

This movie was quirky, inventive unpredictable and within its genre came up with the goods.

Very interesting and exciting concept.

What a waste of time ...

Surprisingly entertaining.

This is the worst movie I have ever seen.

Still enjoyable and with some quite striking, and gory, set pieces.

Save your money .

If it had taken a slower approach, really leaned into Brandon's descent into madness, used the gore a little more wisely, and cut way back on the jump-scares, this could've been really good.

it's really boring.

Additionally, "Brightburn" suffers from most of the same pitfalls of being formulaic and generic as any other modern day horror film.

If "Brightburn" was even 30 minutes longer, us as an audience would've had more time to connect with the characters, making Brandon's descent into madness that much more engaging.

Actually i didnt finish whole movie, i was bored as hell and get out of the cinema.

I'm a bit morbid and I hate the good guys always winning - it's predictable, it's boring and it's old.

Intense .

this is one of enjoyable horror superhero film then topet sematary (2019) or film Jordan Peele US, he wishes this was his movie well thank god he doesn't own this movie.

Brightburn is an unforgettable origin story unlike any ever seen before, it can be categorized as both superhero and horror genres, and in each of these categories, it is unique and exciting!

I was really bored most of the time.

Highly Intense .

It's bland unoriginal uninspired even it has hollow characters predictable plot bad "villain" design in my opinion.

Straight forward, easy to follow & entertaining!

It's an enjoyable, gleefully gory B-movie that leaves things open for a potential sequel, and when it's at its very best, Brightburn truly soars.

Evil superman can happen but story is very slow lame felt like documentary movie.

With some solid jump scares and a well-shot environment, Brightburn is a very effective horror film, an even more effective thriller, and a slightly entertaining action film at times as well.

I'm a pretty nice guy and tend to do the right thing, but much like Ben Parker, with great power, comes great responsibility, despite how cliché that is.

Excess of violence with a lack of plot .

But after Brandon killing a waitress at the restaurant scene, the film completely intense and creepy until the end!

Absolutely love the references to Superman in this film.. Enjoyed it.

The movie does a very bad job at "scaring" people it only has a couple of jumps scares that are very cheap and predictable.

In the end, you see some news clips and hear a song that lets you make a determination in your own mind about the ending because LIKE MOST FILMS THAT HAVE NO PLOT AND GENERALLY SUCK, THE ENDING IS SUBJECTIVE.


It feels like that the whole movie exists just because it wants to waste your time.

But it was boring AF.

Yes there are some plot holes and unanswered questions but overall this is well worth watching and at least 85% better than some other crap out there.

But after the trillionth superhero movie, that concept really starts to sound boring.

We're introduced to this black fat kid who bullies the main charecter and you expect they would do something with him, but they forgot he existed in the second half so his inclusion in the movie was pointless.

I feel it would've benefited if it had about 15 more minutes to slow down and possibly add a few more interesting scenes.

No story, no plot, no attraction.

Even though it's a great film and I've totally enjoyed it, there's something I don't like.

Surprisingly enjoyable...

I just found it boring at times and not that interesting.

I personally love watching horror films and there was one part so intense where I couldn't even look.

Worth the watch!

Yes, it's a horror, but I would count this as a coming of age story.

However, it is also bland and dull.

It's just falls flat, full of cliche's and undeveloped charachters.

It rarely happens that I am pleased with a slasher-type horror: pacing can be off, characters can be unlikable, and the kills are off-screen or boring.

Too bad everything is just dumb and bland.

This could've been an amazing film but I found myself checking how long was left as it started to get a bit boring.

If I had any qualms with it, then I wished it would have taken a few more unpredictable turns for the child rather then going dark too quickly.

There are certainly cool intense moments that add up to nothing.

Happily, this movie embraces the fact that the story it's telling is stale and ends up being a really enjoyable movie.

highly intense...

Boring and stupid .

"Take the World" gave me chills as did the self portraits of the world conquered under his dominion..Whoa!The violence is unrestrained and brutal..The cgi is awe inspiring and very very well done..This movie is a keeper for me and off the charts when it comes to rating it ..This is setup to have a sequel and I want to see that done...

And this flix plods on a pace to notice it's hollowness.

The movie also feels very repetitive in being that they're doing the same things pretty much over and over again, with only 1 or 2 creative scenes towards the end.

To me it's just like the boy got the role because he's someones' son in the industry, the CGI is sooooo terrible it makes the eyes hurt and the plot, another example of an American pointless brutality.

Unusual horror story, but it quite thrilling to watch.

The adult acting is meh, and the kids are ok, but the overall idea of this movie is what makes it worth watching.

If I wanted to watch a long, boring story with no ending I'd watch my own life, thank you very much.

It was entertaining, and the action sequences were great!

But enjoyable & highly recommended.

Intense, suspenseful and gory.

It's that comic component that sort of sells this film, providing the entertaining, destructive force of the dark instead of developing the story.

Waste of time in my opinion, it's lame and some deaths around.

Interesting and quite thrilling.

Worth watching for sure.

It slightly confusing why they make this thing just to show superman can be evil.

Brightburn does not take long to begin getting into the creepy aspects, quickly evolving the plot into this dark, comic book like adventure that tries to be thrilling and suspenseful.

Waste of time

The first 40 or so minutes were nice, going up and up, exciting and all, definitely an 8/10 at that point, but then it started using too much cliche horror tropes, not enough action for the climax & Bad Guy by Billie Eilish as the credits song.

In these boring days of anabolized, messianic films where more than going to the movies it looks like you go to church, this is seriously needed.

No suspense, only a complete waste of your time and money.

The jumpscares were a little dull and predicting as well when Brandon does super speed to kill anyone.

Very entertaining look at what we so seldom get to think through.

I want to left the theater soon before the end credit.

Just infuriating that the direction the story took was too dull for its own good.

Something about children killers is entertaining.

The story is new and refreshing but it had many many plot holes and I felt like something is missing the whole time, but I can say that it's worth watching.
