It’s a movie about a couple of different stories that have nothing to do with each other. Thank God. I am really starting to hate those ‘life is all interconnected’ type movies (think Crash, Powder Blue). However, it’s that annoying hand held camera type film (Blair Witch, Cloverfield). I can tolerate these, but I know lots of people hate them.
There is a decent amount of gore, but it isn’t excessive. The scariest parts of the movie are not the blood and guts. Again, I can tolerate blood and guts, but it doesn’t make a movie for me. Suspense and intrigue does, so good job on that with this one.
