I thought it was beautifully shot and edited and I thought the sound design was very well done. The color palette, the set and scenery, were all very aesthetically pleasing to me. The story was a bit thin, but it served its purpose, which was basically just a vessel to build us up to the shocking reveals. I thought Florence Pugh's performance was fantastic, even if the other actors were mostly average.
I went in knowing and expecting this movie to take some dark, gruesome turns, and it definitely did that. But I think the shock of it all was dulled by the fact that I went in a little too prepared. I've since convinced a few friends who have no context to watch and they all pretty much hate me now haha.
I don't typically get into "scary" movies so when I do watch one and enjoy it I tend to give it more credit than it deserves. Totally possible I'm doing that here, but I'm like 4 or 5 days removed from watching this movie and I'm still thinking about it, so that has to mean something.
