video review : I'm Thinking Of Ending Things

You’ll do yourself a favor turning this movie off before the actual Ending; one of the worst I’ve ever seen. The plot, which starts normal enough with a girl on her way to meet her boyfriend’s parents for the first time, is coated in pretentious ambiguity from the start, but it gets worse the longer it goes. The final several minutes are jarringly off-putting; random and nonsensical; as if director Charlie Kaufman just abandoned the script and said “Fuck it.”

Rat ( story ) … Stephen King

It’s Stephen King’s preference for the strange and supernatural that ruins this one. The Bleeds headline reads something like Novelist With Flu Stuck In Cabin During Killer Cyclone and it could’ve been a decent story if that were the gist, but the plot goes haywire at Chapter 22 when the ridiculous title character comes into play.
