Ok so I really enjoyed this movie but hated it. There were some really good parts, confusing parts, annoying parts and just weird let’s. But I got it. However, I was truly annoyed by the little girl which I guess means she did her job right. I definitely would be open for another.
I watched this based on the trailer and some of the previous reviews here. masterpiece, slow burner, were some of the descriptions bandied about, hyperbole all. wow, if this movie taught me anything, it’s that I hate slow burn horror.
I found the movie plodded along at a tortuously slow pace. the overtly long shots, on characters and family scenes well overdone. I assume this was used to portray some sort of feeling of the family’s plight, tensions and, to a degree, dysfunction. that said, the fact I found nearly all the characters heartily unsympathetic meant this was lost on me. I just found myself (mentally) shouting at the screen ‘get on with it.
nor can I say I was a huge fan of the acting. all those blank stares, gurning, I found bordering on the funny. particularly painful was the scene were the family hold their séance. when peter cries on hid dad’s shoulder, I actually burst out laughing. I found it as cringeworthy as any of those cringy scenes you get in ‘the office’ at least there you’re supposed to laugh. the exception, acting-wise, being G.B as the father. a great actor, he gave his usual fine performance, though his talent I thought, very much wasted on this.
to sum up, and you’ve probably already guessed, not a fan. despite the trailers and other adverts, promising me something new and terrifying, I found nothing original here. the plot for the most part pretty generic and in places quite hackneyed. definitely a case, in my case, of don’t believe the hype.
Best horror movie of all time.
You will not disappointed.
This film was so bad. tried to be scary but wasn’t. why do people in dark houses that hear scary noises never switch on the light. Not a very believeable plot and a little too christian at the very end.
Not a fan of witch movies they disturb me a lot. Couldn’t finish the movie and don’t care for the ending. I’m more of a slasher and I’m Ok watching the nun when it comes out.
