Dean’s review published on Letterboxd:
This review may be biased because I had one of the worst moviegoing experiences.
If you do decide to see this movie, and if you see three 12 year old girls sit next to you, run.
I really wanted to give this movie a chance. The trailers freaked me out, Ann dowd and Toni Collette are phenomenal actors. Alex wolf was in the naked brothers band but I didn’t hold that against him.
From the getgo, these girls were giggling. Then some other people were having side conversations. I was heated...at first.
What started out promising turned into a mess. Some of the dialogue was actually laughable. Was it the writing, or the delivery? It was a mixed bag. The characters were unlikeable and underdeveloped; in the end I didn’t care for them at all. The pacing was bad and clunky.
Some haunting imagery for sure. Old naked people are always a scary sight.
There was some interesting camerawork, ill give it that.
Anyways, the girls in the theater said it was the scariest thing theyve ever seen. I hope it haunts them for a while. Thatll show them.
