The visuals of the movie are beautiful and while they are not entirely original, they are impressive enough to keep the audience’s interest. The movie is set in Detroit and uses its low-key setting pretty well. The production design is also great. The film’s surreal imagery looks impressive on screen.

This new adaptation is a reboot that ignores all prior films in the franchise and starts its take on it. The new film is also a horror-thriller that doesn’t target the fans of the series but instead targets a wider audience who are just excited to see what happens.
