In 2017, Jay Baruchel made his feature directorial debut with Goon: Last of the Enforcers, a sequel to the Michael Dowse helmed Goon, which he co-wrote with Evan Goldberg. The response to his film was that it didn’t sway too much from the original – which makes for an enjoyable sequel but doesn’t try to fix some of the things that critics didn’t enjoy in the first film, such as it’s violence at the scale it had. And it seems that Jay doubled down (or even quadrupled) on the violence for his horror film. And it makes for a great and grimey horror.
