if I could wipe my memory to watch this for the first time again, I would. I had no idea where this was going and in the best way possible. this had me on the edge of my seat until the very last minute. the acting was phenomenal, the pacing never felt too slow or dragged, and the story was wonderfully written with so many twists and turns that you will never be able to guess. the ending was very fitting and it left me satisfied

this was good, but it could have been much better. I really liked the overall style, lighting choices, and scenery for this and I loved the themes and messages in the story. the pacing was very slow although I understand that's how it's supposed to be to add suspense and gradually blur reality and fiction. with the pacing some scenes felt like they dragged, and some scenes didn't feel necessary at all. I wish they would have went more in depth with the background and lore behind the game itself, as it is very important to the plot. I simultaneously liked and disliked how open to interpretation most of the story is and how the story is so vague on what actually happened in the end, but either way it still felt unfinished to me.

I really liked this. the suspense, twists, and horror were all done well and this had some really cool camera work and scenery. I loved how the scares were never too repetitive or predictable despite being a recurring theme. the story itself is great, it was open to so many different interpretations and theories without feeling unfinished. I would recommend this to anyone who likes a good psychological thriller/mystery.

this was great. I cannot stress to you enough how creative this was, I loved every minute of the unique claymation, hand drawn animation, and practical effects. my favorite thing was how the horror elements were executed, this series doesn't rely on jumpscares or too much gore to make it unsettling because of how well done the plot's implications and themes are. the story itself really makes you think at the end and sets itself up for rewatches. the existential dread and longing for normalcy in this series is seriously unmatched. I also have to mention how well red guy's voice actor did in the transport episode, it was truly convincing and added so much to the episode. go watch this !!

this was good, but it had potential to be better. I especially liked the interesting and compelling concept and how the film delved into the motivations of virginie and her perseverance to succeed even at her own expense. this movie did a wonderful job at building up suspense. however, I wish they would've focused more on the dad's death and how that effected the family (as that seems to be why virginie started farming the locusts) and the events leading the family to where they were instead of just being briefly mentioned. this also had some pacing and continuity issues that raised questions and made some things confusing. for example how towards the end the locusts become selective with who they kill, ignoring people in the open and chasing certain other people for dramatic impact. overall this has it's issues, but I thought it was worth a watch.

this was good. I really liked the concept for this entire film and they used that concept very creatively. where this movie really excelled was it's special effects and unique set design. this was generally campy and a bit slow to start but not to where it wasn't enjoyable. I also just wanted to appreciate how some letters in the credits begin to melt down like wax.

this was good, but it could have been much better. the trailer made this seem better than it actually was sadly. I loved the concept for this and the acting was great on Sosie Bacon's part but I feel like they could've executed the scares and overall plot so much better. the plot started out great, but I feel like as it went on the scares completely ruined it. the tension was done well with an unsettling soundtrack, but unfortunately this only leads to a simple jumpscare. after a while this becomes predictable and not as scary, causing the film to loose it's tension. the scares have the desired effect at first but then they fall repetitive and very predictable.

the way in which the horror is infused into the story is so well done with amazing effects and a phenomenal and unique creature design to back it up. the plot had you constantly on the edge of your seat.
