Alright, so this is one of the very best films of 2018. Criminally underrated/overlooked. Tarantino-inspired, certainly, but very much its own thing.

Brought to you by Drew Goddard, the J.J. Abrams protege who directed The Cabin In The Woods, was a writer on Lost, etc.

I would strongly suggest avoiding the trailer, since I had a magical experience going in fresh, but it is a very good trailer and is entirely representative of the movie. Just try to ignore most of the plot details. Significant spoilers begin right at 30 sec.

Wanted to like this one--but it felt too Low-Rent Tarantino to me.
