Caught this in IMAX yesterday. A mostly satisfying suspense chiller that forgoes narrative coherence in the third act in service of a cheap GOTCHA twist, but overall it's pretty well done - another memorable Elisabeth Moss downward spiral showcase (and how I love those).

A lot of the cheesier moments/effects in the trailer are not in the final film.

And we're all so sick and tired of seeing things as they are...

Going from Upgrade to this, it's safe to say that Leigh Whannell is on a roll. Nobody out there is doing lean and mean thrillers with this level of poise and craftsmanship right now. Just a filmmaker who knows exactly what he's doing and does it. Nothing but good things to say.
