This movie is such a delight and easily one of the best horror comedies this side of Shaun of the Dead. The script is witty and funny, the child cast is adorable and Lupita Nyong'o also charms. Loved it.
Wow. Easily Alex Ajas best film since The Hills Have Eyes. Fans looking for the directors trademark savage violence are going to be let down. Except for some blood towards the end there's hardly any in sight. Actually, this isn't really a horror film at all but a dark, twisted fairy tale and tragic love story. It's serious in parts, mainly during flashback sequences, but then there are scenes which are laugh out loud hilarious. It's also on the blackest…
Less haunted house horror and more a study of grief and loss. Exceptional acting brings the damaged characters to life, and exceptional storytelling adds layers upon layers of dramatic heft. Equal parts thrilling and heart wrenching all wrapped up in profound sadness, Mike Flanagan delivers his best work yet.
