now, this is common: the beginning is a finely chiseled swan, but it becomes just a stone block by the end. the ending story mechanics involve Tanning Bed Terror, like they knew what they had to do but they weren't thinking too much about how to do it.

that said, i think there are clear eyes on its central theme, which involves fiery satire, and dramatic irony from the main characters not likely to confess that they symbolize the shallow narcissism of contemporary youth culture. as the movie states, their minds are on their numbers. which is crazy. they are people's reaction to Anissa Weier, Morgan Geyser and Slender Man. which means this movie is bleak and critical of its time, thereby in my opinion being a good horror movie, on top of the fact that i think it does a solid job of portraying the personality of its time. this is the thing: the personality of our time changes every year. how very 2015 Dope is now. but if you're going to do it you should do it, and what'll happen by the end is there will be a perfect representation of the fast-shifting landscapes of our current culture, which terrifies people so much that most just ignore. so ace job Tragedy Girls, for speaking of the horrible through a horror movie.
