A mother and father take their kids to their beach house, expecting to enjoy time with friends,
but their serenity turns to tension and chaos when some visitors arrive uninvited.

It looks like Jordan Peele may be the next Wes Craven.

Some friends and I did one of those trailer reaction videos. Forgive us as we're idiots, but I think some pretty funny stuff got through. I'm the big dude with the Lebowski shirt.

I saw this in Dolby Cinema last night. The image was very naturalistic. Nothing showy for HDR, save for some scenes at a beachside carnival at night. Same goes for the Atmos. Nothing bombastic, but there's some effective directionality when necessary.

As for the content, it's just as creepy as you'd expect. The tension is very effective. (When talking about horror, I always have to give the caveat that no movie has scared me since I was a kid, so I can't judge how scary it will be for you.) Like Get Out, it's an original story that works on multiple levels with many ways to interpret it. How deep you go is up to you. But I enjoyed this immensely. And I think this will benefit from multiple views.

From the opening scene until about 20 minutes from the end, this movie was great. Funny, created tension, and kept you on your seat.

Then it tried to explain everything....and that’s where it fell apart. Still an enjoyable movie, but the story could have used some help - or better yet, limit it to just this family and dont explain anything.
