Sometimes when you don’t know anything going into a film, this magical moment happens where you’re so stunned by its brilliance you feel almost stupid for never knowing about it. This week’s selection is that feeling two fold as Steve and I praise this masterful “horror” mystery which is better than the sum of its parts. #IdBuyThatForADollar is quite the understatement this time around, but if the shoe fits..
A running topic on the show, and in my life in general, is the battle between universal acclaim and general hatred.

Join us for this epitaph of a review where we share our conflicting views while trying to understand why this notoriously flopped so hard.
