A solid movie about how we define good and evil. You can even take it a step further and look at this story as a breaking of the psycopath character trope that has become so common in horror and thriller movies since the 80s and 90s. Which is not only refreshing but needed in breaking social stigmas that surround the mental health community. Solid performances by some solid actors. Notably this is Anton Yelchin's final role, but the two leads do a great job playing off each other. Definitely worth checking out.

"Overall, I really liked this movie. I thought it was very good. I didn’t really know what to expect other than Tim’s involvement from the description but that was ultimately wrong so lol. But all the acting from everyone is really good. Particularly Anya Taylor-Joy and Olivia Cooke..." Copy and paste the link below for the rest of the review!

I usually like dark humour or even twisted humour however I did not find this movie to be funny. Both girls were sociopaths that lack a conscience. Maybe I lost my sense of humour or just watched to many movies but I did not find this one to be enjoyable.

If you like strange weird and violent themes...go for it. If you prefer something that is inspiring or thoughtful pass on this one. I wish I had.

A low key and low budget attempt to do a Hitchcock film that combines Strangers on a Train and Rope. There is even a passing resemblence to the much superior Heavenly Creatures from Peter Jackson. Here we have two upper class young girls who are both pyschopathic and come together in the worst way friends can in certain situations. Both young actresses Olivia Cooke and especially Anya Taylor Joy are quite good in this slight but not uninteresting film.

I heard this called a black comedy, and the trailer made it look a bit like "Heathers" and while it has a few comic moments, it's not really funny. Two teenage girls (Olivia Cooke, Anya Taylor-Joy) in a wealthy suburb plot the murder of one of their stepfathers. It has a bit of a Hitchcock feel to it, as filtered through an indie film. The two lead are very good and the blandly luxurious setting is a nice contrast to the violence. If there's a flaw, it's that the stepfather character (played by Paul Sparks from "Boardwalk Empire" and "House of Cards") doesn't really seem murder worthy. The late Anton Yelchin co-stars as a local drug dealer.

Dark and twisted but sooo well done! The acting is really good and the movie is beautifully filmed and written/directed. Wouldn’t say the plot really matches with the various synopses but presumably they are trying not to give too much away and to make the plot appeal to and attract the most viewers. I found the actual plot way more interesting and unusual than those more generic descriptions.

Highly disappointing. Not sure why I even borrowed this movie, the preview must have been more interesting. I fast-forwarded through much of the movie, because it was boring and the acting sucked. They made it look like the 2 girls were going to kiss and make out, by the way they were always staring at each other. It was a total waste of time.
