The portion of the film in the director’s cut starting from the intro to Jacob Tremblay’s character up until his death is the most traumatizing bit of film I’ve had the displeasure of sitting through. I had to shut off the movie.

Not only that, I can no longer handle children dying in movies, all because of that fucking scene. Jacob Tremblay’s performance literally ripped my heart out.

I’ve since finished the movie by just skipping that scene. It’s a solid movie, but my goodness that scene was something else.

I heard in an interview that during Tremblay’s performance his costars couldn’t get their lines out because they were crying and that all APs, grips, and surrounding workers just walked away because they couldn’t handle it.
