    The Haunting of Hill House

    ★★★★½

    Near perfection. Genuinely creepy. Genuinely heartbreaking. I’m not crying. Nope. Not at all.

    I.... felt uncomfortable a few times? But that was it. Style over substance - which is hilarious considering what this is a “remake” of - but in the worst way. Remove the original from the equation completely and it doesn’t even matter. This just wasn’t good. Thom Yorke’s score is great, but severely out of place. Tilda Swinton is great - in both (all 3?) capacities. Jessica Harper is adorable and I’m just glad to see her in something. The negatives outweigh the positives though.

    An absolutely wonderful breath of fresh air as far as Tim Burton's films are concerned. It might not be Ed Wood, but it still proves to be an intriguing enough biopic. Where the pacing and script sometimes falter, the great performances by the cast as well as the gorgeous aesthetics definitely pick up the slack.
