I actually liked this indie art-house psychological horror-thriller film

As user 'andmcq' said, it's "so bad it's good" Actor/novice director (and Limp Bizkit frontman) Fred Durst in his 3rd full length feature film (multiple shorts), alongside amateur Dave Bekerman, also get their first ever writing credit - and it shows. This film is inspired by a real-life fan who pursued (as Limp Bizkit's frontman) Fred Durst many years ago, and the screenplay was written by Durst and Dave Bekerman. There were many plot and technical issues with the story-line, however the overall premise of the story was refreshing and put together quite well, as a art-house styled psychological horror-thriller film. Had Durst and Bekerman hired a seasoned screenwriter to tweak the story, I'm sure the critics would've had a positive opinion, and may have propelled this film to a cult-following style classic. Although I'm not a fan of narrated films, this one was fitting with the comic-style sketches. The cinematography was good, and the score on point. The pacing was perfect for the 88 min runtime. The acting by the leads was decent, but Travolta did bring his A-game on this one. I'm actually quite baffled how some critics found his swaying comical or inappropriate... have they never seen an autistic person before? I know many autistic people, and his performance was on point. Going into this not expecting much based on the bad reviews, I surprisingly thoroughly enjoyed it, and recommend it. It's a well deserved 8/10 from me. If anyone questions my review as fake, click my username to see my 1000+ ratings and 700+ reviews. Now go see this little gem with an open and non-judgmental mind.

Excellent acting

Yes, Travolta can act outside his stereotype. Excellent and refreshing. Ignore the bad reviews as probably they are from fans stuck in the Travolta stereotype.

I have autism and I liked the movie.

When I read the terrible reviews about this movie, I was curious. Especially about the autistic character. I imagined the worst stereotypes, the worst mistakes and the worst treatments. But what I found was a character on the spectrum, problematic, confused, full of anguish and, in the end caused me a lot of pity. In fact, it was the autistic character who touched me the most in his representation for cinema. I'm a huge fan of good films and that's why I say: forget all the shameful bull**** that the "specialized" critics have been writing about this work. This film is worth watching. What's not worth paying attention to is the growing ignorance dressed as political correctness.
