I still think "The Witch" is a good movie though, with nuanced characters and creepy atmosphere. At the absolute least, it's a bold experiment that stands out for trying something completely different. But it was upstaged by its own hype and didn't quite meet my expectations.
"The Objective"- from one of the guys who directed "The Blair Witch Project"- kept my attention for awhile, but I quickly realized that the story wasn't going anywhere and the suspense was being wasted, although I did laugh at some of the special effects.
I love "It Follows" for its individuality, as it has a unique story, visual style and even the character writing and scare tactics were somewhat unconventional. But above everything, I thought it was pretty damn scary!
I can see many viewers calling "Maniac" boring and I wouldn't blame them. But I thought the filmmakers did a masterful job at creating a never-ending feeling of unease thanks to the atmosphere and amazing performance by Joe Spinell- who is adorable and terrifying at once.
