I expected a horror comedy that used a “can’t make this stuff up” premise to have some fun while watching a coked-up bear run rampant.

What I got was a dark comedy that was more dark than that 90% cocoa chocolate bar you bought by mistake and often, just as bitter. Maybe what director Elizabeth Banks needed was her co-star from the Pitch Perfect movies, John Michael Higgins, to keep the levity that often left the set in this uneven movie.

The kids were the absolute highlight. They had the best lines and the best interactions, while some of the seasoned adults looked like they were trying to figure out whether to play their roles straight or tongue-in-cheek.

When the dashes of greatness come, they are effective, but they also make the low points that much lower. This is definitely a rental at best, and streaming it will not impact your enjoyment of it whatsoever.
