Two birds of a feather with a common appetite, living in the shadows with a curse they try to fight, struggle to give in, to temptations that spellbind, an addiction of the mind that leaves them hamstrung and confined; finding others with dependencies more practiced and distilled, whose lives have little meaning, all alone and unfulfilled, helpless and exposed by the hand they’ve all been played, the promised life and expectations, all diminished and betrayed.
Some great performances but all eclipsed by Taylor Russell who is outstanding as the conflicted Maren struggling to come to terms with who she is and what she can and cannot do about it.

The first 30 to 45 minutes were strong. Looked to be the beginning of a decent horror movie. Then it fell off a cliff. Used to be a movie was 90 to 100 minutes long. Now they tend more toward two hours or more. This would have been a much better movie at less than 100 minutes. It would have also been better if there was more horror and less love story.
A decision should have been made right at the onset as to whether the movie would be a horror movie with some romance or a love story with some horror. This was not done and the movie was neither. The dialog seemed stilted. It did not flow. Not sure what the director was going for but I found it irritating. The eater concept was minimally and poorly explained.
The bones and all ideas just fell flat. Mentioned but no follow-through. The scent superpower was left twisting in the wind. Why bother introducing this if it’s not significant to the story? Maybe I was generous in rating this a five.
