An unnecessary, joyless affair, it plods along offering “canonical” tidbits to fans but very little to casual viewers.
With wooden acting, a plodding storyline, and several cringeworthy changes from the source material, the 2022 version indeed starts a fire – a dumpster fire.
For those who enjoy stews that mix warped comedy with twisted horror, it hits the spot.
