The amount of heart and care that went into making this movie elevates it for me, despite a final act that gets a bit repetitive and a narrative that doesn't quite deliver on all of its promises. The script is solid, the performances are great and the tough questions/concepts being discussed will stick with you long after the credits roll.
The horror elements in this imaginative retelling of Frankenstein are decent, but the real-world terrors surrounding it are far more frightening.
Anything For Jackson puts a creative spin on the possession/haunting sub-genre and builds a movie that's oddly charming at times, has a wicked sense of humor and some solid chills. It's just a hell of a lot of fun to watch and might even crack my top 10 of the year. The second and third acts don't quite live up to the opening, but that's only because the opening is so, so damn strong. What an unexpected treat to help cap off the real-life nightmare that has been the year 2020.
