    “God, I’m so horny.”

    The series finally drops any pretenses of setting up plot or character (though the characters here are probably the most entertaining of the bunch) and fully gives in to its sleazy conventions and proclivity for spilling blood for a lean and mean ode to carnal desires and mutilations of the flesh. Every blade piercing, hacking, slashing and, in some cases bare hands pulverizing flesh, is imbued with a pornographic glee…

    “I just had to know where I went wrong”
    “The years I’ve spent trying to get things i was told were important—things, not people...or meaning.”
    “I know it’s [the next time] going to be different.”

    Selling the biggest American lie—that matierial wealth/keeping the status quo is the only path to happiness—as a dream to consumers who were already living out that lie.

Think it would pair well with NEXT OF KIN for a moody down-south double feature.

    A damning critique of modern America. Jordan Peele's strange, socio-political home invasion follow up is proof that he's no fluke, showing just how much of a strong grasp he has on the horror genre; knowing that it flourishes best when used as a vehicle for some underlying real world issue. Here, it slowly reveals itself through tons of symbolism that is honestly kind of overwhelming at first glance, and might need another viewing to fully unpack all of it. But…
