Frightening & Intense Scenes
- The whole film deals with unexpected deaths of "innocent" people as well as how an "innocent" family tries to cover it up. It's dark and the characters aren't especially redeemable (obviously, in my opinion). It has an odd tone where the film is fairly dramatic but often overlays the more macabre scenes with upbeat alternative american songs. There is also quite a bit of dark humor in how they approach their predicament.
