so it wasn't actually as bad as I expected. Writing was kind of weak, acting was hit-or-miss, and there's some super unwarranted nudity that felt shoehorned in even by horror standards, but even with all that, I didn't not enjoy myself.

Kind of want to watch the 2019 one tomorrow just to see how it compares.

watching the 2019 Escape Room

Production value of everything is WAY higher (the 2017 one seemed like it could be a legitimate escape room but this basically seems like an amusement park)

but the characters are largely pretty terrible so far. How is it that like only one person in the escape room knows how escape rooms work

so it was definitely not terrible. The designs of the rooms were all really cool, even if the puzzles themselves were a simplistic given the effort that seems to have gone into crafting the rooms themselves (literally every room is basically one single, simple puzzle). My biggest issue was the writing and characters though. In literally the very beginning of the first room everyone's already losing their minds like they didn't voluntarily come to an escape room, and most of the characters seem to actively work against solving the puzzles to the point that the main protagonist has to solve nearly every one solo.

Ma was certainly a movie that I viewed in a theater.

Without Octavia Spencer's acting, there is literally nothing in this.

Watched the original Carrie after realizing I had never seen it all the way through. Man what brilliant storytelling. If you knew nothing going in you might think it's a feel-good coming-of-age film about acceptance until the last 15 minutes, there's really not too much in the way of horror up till that point, aside from some stuff with the mom. The ending had more of an impact now that I actually saw how well it's sold that Carrie's life is finally going to improve, how she finally stands up to her mom and asserts herself. Genius tragic horror. And the last scene, holy smokes. I mean I had seen that part before but imagining it in a theater, people must've gone as nuts as they did at the Psycho twist.

Anyway that's my 40-years-late review, go catch Carrie in theaters, this Stephen King guy's the hot new name in horror.

Saw Hole in the Ground on Amazon. It was actually really good. Basic story, but it did a lot of really good stuff with the "my child is different" kind of story. Some legitimately creepy moments in it.

I'd recommend.
