For the most part, this is one of the better horror movies made using covid restrictions to its advantage. There is one scene where, unfortunately, the special effects realllllllly were awful and took me out of the movie. It's sad that happened in a movie that used its limitations so skillfully but hey overall, I found it enjoyable.

Currently streaming on Shudder.

If you have Criterion, they have nine different short films by this director (Jennifer Reeder) along with an interview.

I wish we could get Jennifer Reeder a real banger of a screenplay, because it's usually the writing in the stuff she makes that lets me down. Her style and skills are undeniable. This worked better for me than most of her stuff and I'd even say I liked it. But it was still mildly frustrating seeing a pretty good movie with some of the parts of a very, very good movie but still not getting there.

I've been sort of following her career since a friend(ish) person was her DP on an early short.
