I wish I was a cave flea, so I could be raped with a gynosome for three days straight.

mallard you need to caption that - it's not some nerd's attempt at CGI weirdness... it's a photo of a fungus-riddled fly head. that's insane!

ANYWAY i figured we could talk CooS spoilers in here... maybe there's not too much to talk about. we shall see.
• I loved the last part the most - from the tape playback in Ezra's shed all the way to the end
• thinking about this movie the next day, remembering its scenes feels more like dream recollections than anything else. that has to be some sort of win on the lovecraft scale
• I can't believe how unabashedly it lifted from The Thing! that one scene felt like Mandy x The Thing
• there were so many great moments in this movie... I keep wondering if it could have been edited differently to make it perfect. I think losing the energy tentacles might've been wise? the older son who got got by the well... it was a big nothing.
• in the beginning I was like "oooooh, they're giving us hints that the water is important - I am an astute cineaste"; then for the entire rest of the movie it's just WATER WATER WATER WATER WATER :lol:
• the brief moment when the mom was fed up RULED
• I don't think I emphasized it above: the audio processing on the Ezra playback was impeccable

Saw the movie then started reading the story.

Movie was fun but had a lot Mandy vibes. Surprised at how much The Thing was an influence on this.

Annihilation = Color Out Of Space
Prometheus = Del Toro's At The Mountains of Madness that was never made.
