It's being billed as the next big thing in horror movies! Rave reviews. Certified Fresh on Rotten Tomatoes with a 94% rating as of this writing. And I hated it. All 127 minutes of it.

What's it's the synopsis from Rotten Tomatoes:

When Ellen, the matriarch of the Graham family, passes away, her daughter's family begins to unravel cryptic and increasingly terrifying secrets about their ancestry. The more they discover, the more they find themselves trying to outrun the sinister fate they seem to have inherited. Making his feature debut, writer-director Ari Aster unleashes a nightmare vision of a domestic breakdown that exhibits the craft and precision of a nascent auteur, transforming a familial tragedy into something ominous and deeply disquieting, and pushing the horror movie into chilling new terrain with its shattering portrait of heritage gone to hell.

Now sure, it had it's moments. But it was a slow simmer. Building. And mind you, I caught on to what was happening. Saw it coming. There were a few shocks and surprises (not jump scares...more what's that I can make out in the shadows and some out of nowhere graphic violence). And it deals with a family and how they cope with grief. And how that spiraled out of control. But other than that...NO...JUST NO.

THAT ENDING THO?!? And not in that good way.

If you liked IT FOLLOWS  or IT COMES AT NIGHT,  this might be for you. It's what folks are calling new horror. And not for those of us who need our horror or suspense spelled out for us. I loved A Quiet Place. This...not so much.

Here's how mad I was when I walked out of the theater on Friday.

Audiences polled by CinemaScore gave the film an average grade of "D+" on an A+ to F scale. (Wikipedia)

Audience score was 73% on Rotten Tomatoes.

These folks, they feel my pain.
