The blood-soaked slippery slope…
Less a character deconstruction (though there's a nice mental framework for that built around the subjectivity of art), and more a slow escalating and chronicling of violent sociopathic methodology. We watch Jack grow, not as a person, but as a serial killer. And with each major step (or "incident", as the film defines these milestones) towards refined depravity and sadism, a shedding of whatever little humanity Jack happened to posses. The scariest part of the film (which is also one of the funniest) is when he has to learn (through imitation) how to behave like a well adjusted human being, so that he can be a more effective serial killer. Matt Dillon staring into a mirror surrounded by pictures of normal people—each exhibiting a different emotion—and attempting to mimic those facial expressions, was absolutely chilling.
A blood soaked decent into hell…Read More
But it's good. Better than most Netflix original horror outings (I know I know, low bar) and does an admirable job thriving on the drama created from its premise. Drama that's propelled by solid performances from a nicely varied cast of "hey I recognize that person"-listers and lead by an also solid turn-in from Sandra Bullock. If you dug A Quiet Place, you'll dig this.
If not, you still might.Read More

Extremity feels like what I'd imagine Rob Zombie's idea of psychotherapy to be. The haunt equivalent of David Fincher's Seven. It's a brutal affair layered with scathing commentary that unflinchingly dives into the topic of physical and mental abuse. An effective story, one tailor fit for the horror genre.
