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.
If I could move the night I would
And I would turn the world around if I could
There's nothing wrong with loving something you can't hold in your hand
You're sitting on the edge of the bed, smoking and shaking your head
Well there's nothing wrong with loving things that cannot even stand
Well there goes your moony man
With his suitcase in his hand
Every road is lined with animals
That rise from their blood and walk
Well the moon won't get a wink of sleep
If I stay all night and talk

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.
