There were some nightmarishly creepy imagery that were shown, that I could just imagine will be haunting some 10 Year old kid that’s watching this movie.
Has a really good sense of building up that suspension right before that jump scare hits. Some good freights, combined with disturbing imagery? Yes!
There were some scares that I was happily surprised went as far as they did in the execution.
Some clever scares in this movie. You’ll end up picking and ranking your favorite scary story. My most favorite scary set piece involves a color…
The premise is legitimately compelling, and it was easy to get invested in it once the story gets moving (in the scares department).
I appreciated the fact that there were some plot developments that moved in a logically natural manner, as I hate it when they find excuses just to waste time from progressing the story.
Standout performance by Zoe Colletti as Stella. Convincingly takes the leading character role like a seasoned scream queen.
I suppose I appreciate that this scary film is like a solid introductory horror movie for 8 - 12 Year olds. They may as well start with this, before they get into the really traumatic horror films out there.
It’s a horror movie that’s targeted more for the 8 - 12 Year old crowd.
I wasn’t a big fan of the opening acts, with the character introductions, and the set up for the premise. Made me impatient for the scares already.
No shade to the young actors, but the characters Chuck, Auggie, and Tommy, were just not entertaining to me. Well, Chuck had some good lines, I’ll give him that.
There were some STUPID STUPID things that happened. Whether it be a character doing an idiotic thing, or some silly plot convenience just to move the story along.
Depending on how you take it, the conclusion to the movie may or may not be to your liking.
