Look, I'll do what I can here, but I'm sick, which prevented me from dipping in to Carrie De Palma last night, but since I saw this on Netflix and realized it took place on Halloween night, I planned to watch it on the 31st. And I did. It's interesting, a pretty straightforward, quick film, but, even with how bloody his future films can get, this does feel a bit outside of what Saulnier ends up doing. Maybe just because it's more contained, but so is Green Room. Think that one just hits a better tone, whereas how light this one gets, while fun, sort of doesn't allow the heavier aspects or reveals to hit. Maybe it's just the brevity. Who knows. Really strange part in here where it, for no real reason, gets in to a convo about a racial slur that is even stranger with literally all the people involved in the convo being white, but perhaps it resonates more in Trump's America than it did when this film first came out. Who can say? Not me. I think Green Room is Saulnier's best by a pretty wide margin thus far. Oh yeah, enjoyed the performances here too. It wasn't really scary. But whatever, it was fun.
On the Goosebumps scale I would give this Goosebumps: The Movie because I can't think of the right book atm.
