Could I have watched this with my Dad? : Yes, and I probably will at some point.
Could I have watched this with my Mom? : Sure, but she probably would have strongly disliked it.
Violence/Gore: Yeah. There are skinned animals shown. A man is stabbed and there is blood. I can't say more without spoiling things, but there isn't very much.
Intense moments? : Yes, only one that made me jump, though.
Music: I really liked the music. I found it fascinating, and it really drew me in.
Did I feel the need to leave the lights off and sit in silence afterwards? : YES. I sat through the credits in darkness and silence, and then I video called my sister to whisper talk with her about the movie. When my parents came home I literally hid under a blanket because I didn't want to see the light or hear voices above a whisper. This movie really hit me, and I L O V E D it.
Was there a food pairing? : I do not remember, this was like a week ago.
Thoughts: I knew this movie had a twist, but I didn't know what it was. I would occasionally try to think ahead, but most of the time I was caught up in the movie and didn't want to think ahead I just wanted to be carried along by the plot of the movie. When the twist happened...I guess I would describe it as a slow, silent blowing of my mind...
Was this a good use of a night with the house to myself? : Yes. I could have watched this with my Dad, but I didn't know if it was more on the horror side or not, and honestly I am very glad that I was alone to see this for the first time. I think having another person there would have ruined the beautiful funk it left me in at the end.
5 out of 5 stars, I'm still not out of the beautiful, mind-blown funk.
