The day the whole student body was summoned to the main building for a meeting, she felt a nauseating pit in her stomach that maintained during the walk to the building. She silently shifted through the crowds of fellow students, slinking through like a shadow, and eventually she was at the front of the crowd and stepping through the doors.

Who cares, I'm doing it anyway: "Jesus, take the wheel/Take this from my hands/'Cause I can't do it on..my...own." Watching this masterful, breathtaking, 90-minute nightmare that Krasinski has created, a horror film we will be praising for a long, long time to come, I may have found a new religion.
