I heard this called a black comedy, and the trailer made it look a bit like "Heathers" and while it has a few comic moments, it's not really funny. Two teenage girls (Olivia Cooke, Anya Taylor-Joy) in a wealthy suburb plot the murder of one of their stepfathers. It has a bit of a Hitchcock feel to it, as filtered through an indie film. The two lead are very good and the blandly luxurious setting is a nice contrast to the violence. If there's a flaw, it's that the stepfather character (played by Paul Sparks from "Boardwalk Empire" and "House of Cards") doesn't really seem murder worthy. The late Anton Yelchin co-stars as a local drug dealer.

Dark and twisted but sooo well done! The acting is really good and the movie is beautifully filmed and written/directed. Wouldn’t say the plot really matches with the various synopses but presumably they are trying not to give too much away and to make the plot appeal to and attract the most viewers. I found the actual plot way more interesting and unusual than those more generic descriptions.

Highly disappointing. Not sure why I even borrowed this movie, the preview must have been more interesting. I fast-forwarded through much of the movie, because it was boring and the acting sucked. They made it look like the 2 girls were going to kiss and make out, by the way they were always staring at each other. It was a total waste of time.

A dark, well written and entertaining movie. Certainly not something that will be for everyone, though, and that's okay.

I was very pleasantly surprised by it.

Really disliked it..Too dark and nasty! Didn't finish it! I didn't realize this was a Thriller! I have seen good thrillers in the past! This is not it! Good riddance! I wouldn't recommend it!

I really liked the way this movie answered a question while asking several more in the build-up of the plot. The ending, however, was quite the opposite - it telegraphed what was going to happen and didn't make much sense to me. A well-acted disappointment.

The preview looked interesting but the film blew me away. The writer/director is a young man but wise beyond his years. The acting was outstanding! Film-noir at it's finest!!! Highly recommended!!!

Very well-paced, intelligent black comedy. Acting excellent by all principals, including Anton Yelchin, who died fourteen days after shooting wrapped. Some incisive commentary/ observations on human behavior when money is no object in wealthy CT suburb. Probably destined to at least be a cult classic.

Very disturbing movie. Gave me the creeps! Reminds me of the Bulger boys.
