I have never been one to be emotionally shaken by a horror film. Sure I have been a quivering mass of gelatin over films like "The Beaches," " The Elephant Man," and "Hedwig and The Angry Inch," but horror films, as much as I enjoy them, have only provoked disgust, amusement, or eye rolling disdain. Tonight's film had me shouting "Leave her alone!" and provoked an actual emotional response. I may be alone in this. I have always preferred the company of seniors over that of children (some of you will get the full story on that later upon request) and as a (although I do not fully identify with the term) gay person, and as a training health care professional, I can say that this film pulled all the strings necessary. I had to repeatedly pause the film to either process or recover. Astonishingly it is a film of a genre in which I had previously held in disdain, the pseudo-documentary genre. I've never been a fan of films like "The Blair Witch Project" or "Cloverfield", but this film hit me like a ton of bricks. I couldn't bear to utter a single spoiler. Do me a favor and watch this film. If you are on the fence, message me and I will answer any and all pertinent questions.
