1. It's surprising people in so many ways.

Pretty sure I just saw the summer's best movie surprise: THE GIFT, which is seriously great and totally unexpected.

@GiftMovie creeps, thrills, and leaves thinking about the film long after you leave the theater! Well done @joeledgerton1!

3. It's making people drop all the F-bombs.

Just saw THE GIFT. Holy shit, that movie is not fucking around.

4. It features Jason Bateman in a significantly darker role than we've seen him in before.

Saw #TheGift last night at the @drafthouse. Solid psychological thriller and @batemanjason is fantastic in it.

5. Audiences are definitely impressed.

Wow, I *loved* #TheGift. It's immaculately crafted and one of the best psychological thrillers I've seen in some time.

Not gunna lie... Definitely just broke my personal record for most screams in a movie theatre. No shame. #thegiftmovie

I'll admit- #thegiftmovie is a fantastic date movie. I bet you scream out loud at least once.

9. Let's just say no one is safe.

10. It's making people re-examine past relationships.

Every time I see a preview for #TheGift I seriously think about how I treated people in high school.

11. Consensus is you'll never expect what's coming.

THE GIFT is a dark, twisted, classy thriller. Had me on edge the entire time. It goes places I never expected. Go see it when it comes out!
