Okay, so first of all I need to know more about this crazy story. I want a book made so I can read about it. I mean it happened in my state for Pete’s sake! The closest I can find to a book being made is this one Cocaine Bear. Anyway this movie was fun. Now if you’re taking kids it is very gorey. I’m not sure I would. I don’t like gore and it was a bit much for me. But I enjoyed the story. I followed it very well. It was a horror/dark comedy and was a fun way to spend 1.5 hours. I know it’s not everyone’s movie but my daughter and myself had fun watching it. If you’re looking for a movie that is going to make you think then this one definitely isn’t the one! But if you’re looking for a funny/horror/gore movie then this one is your movie. I would watch Cocaine Bear again because it was a fun lil romp in the woods for a day. So if this is your cup of tea go see it. You’ll probably enjoy it like we did. It has a great cast of actors in this movie. For Elizabeth Banks foray into this crazy story I think she did a decent job!
