When Ellen, the matriarch of the Graham family, passes away, her daughter’s family begins to unravel cryptic and increasingly terrifying secrets about their ancestry.
Good start, but then it gets ruined
This is a tender, generous movie that likes its characters and presents them as real people, full of flaws and strengths.
A clunky actioner with a handful of cool moments.
Reading about the movie and seeing all the reviews really made me feel excited to see it. But as minutes of the film passed and scenes continued to exchange, I kept on waiting the moment when I as a viewer will experince some sort of excitement but it failed to happen. This movie is boring, predictible, emotionally neutral, in no way scary, with very few elements of horror. Pure disappointment. As I was seeing it in the movies, I couldn't wait for it to end.
I am left wondering if the glowing 10/10 reviews are fake or people are growing increasingly used to terrible movies and the bar is set extremely low. The good:Acting is believeable It looks great The music is creepy The bad: If you enjoy actual horror, then this movie will leave you bored and even laughing at times. Fyi The humour is not intentional.Long drawn out moments with the music blaring. They needed to cut at least 30-45 min.Long stretches of nothing actually happening.Plot is a hard meh. Nothing new. Conclusion I think it would have been passible with some scenes either shortened or cut. It would have made the movie roll along and kept the "creepyness" theme going. Unfortunately they decided to go with drawn out scenes with creepy music and less substance.
This movie gave me the horror feeling I haven't felt for a while in the movie industry. The movie is 0% predictable which keep the tense at all time, no need to appeal to the surprising screaming of suspense genre we have seen a lot lately in movies like The Conjuring. Photography is great, well balanced, disgusting at times, acting is great. The mayor issue people is saying its that it is too slow, and maybe it is if you expect to have a 2hour of screaming in sunday funday, you have to enter the movie as a family character and you will be scared the brains out.Recommend it!
Seems advertisment is done correctly on this movie. I really felt that I wasted my time with this, if you are supernatural fan - this is not a movie to go to.
