Halina Reijn directs Amandla Stenberg, Maria Bakalova and Rachel Sennott in this murder mystery at a Gen Z party where bratty rich kids keep turning up dead.
Self-centered. Glowstick hoops. Lit by never ending cell phones in invincible flashlight mode. Figured out the whodunit mystery aspect very early doors so this held very little for me. There’s no set-pieces per se (Do not go in expecting a hipper Scream) just a lot of running around in the dark, screeching and saying buzz words. Good ensemble playing irritating characters and I’m a bit too old to care about what is being satirised. Rachel Sencott is MVP – a screechy, whiny, bouncing Energiser bunny. Not sure it can be categorised as ‘Horror’ in even the loosest sense?
