I REALLY liked this movie. I really liked it a LOT. The team behind this have made a couple of movie that would probably land in my top 25 – this and YOU’RE NEXT. Does anyone remember when I used to do those interviews? You should help me out on Twitter to get the director – Adam Wingard to sit down with me. He seems like he would have a good sense of humor and have a laugh at some poop questions. Anyway – this movie was super fun, bloody, funny, well shot, used practical effects and was all around a good fucking blast! I’ll watch this a LOT in my life. Shit – I might even buy it… Since it’s 2015 now, I’ll say that this is the best movie I’ve seen in 2015 so far – for reals – watch this and have fun.
This good looking fellow shows up at some house somewhere claiming to be the army buddy of the resident’s killed-in-action son. He’s charming and smooth and wins over the mother and father and other-son of the household (FYI – I’ve misspelled “and” like, five times already) but doesn’t seem to be on the good graces with the comely daughter:

So – he smooth talks his way here and there and this movie was going OK and then he and the kid brother go to a bar to confront some high school bullies and this thing starts kicking serious ass. They introduce some wicked fucking music, there’s a wicked fucking bar brawl and everything just gets more and more badass from there. Seriously, with the build up of the music and the action in that bar – I was really loving it and it never let me down after that – all the way to the very last scene and line of dialogue – I LOVED how this ended. This won’t spoil anything but #WhatTHEFuck that’s one of the best endings since ALL CHEERLEADERS DIE
Speaking of cheerleaders:
I love the part where the daughter makes a call to the army to ask about who this guy might be. She says his name and almost everything stops all the way to some war room somewhere where this guy stops everything and heads out to go capture Mr. Smooth calling in “ex-KGB, sharpshooters, anyone they can get their hands on”. That was a really fun sequence of events. The keen eye and fan might notice a shaven A.J. Bowen in there.
I thought this movie was excellent fun – up to and including the big high school Halloween maze finale. Good, good, good stuff! This is totally worth a rent or a buy – all the way, baby! I was talking to someone about a sequel and they didn’t think that would be necessary but I think, if the same guys did it – it could totally work.
