Achoura ★★½

Well, that just missed. It's got some great ideas and the setting was cool and interesting, but the construction of the movie was not coherent. The spine -- a story about generational corruption and sacrifice -- was full of potential and certainly differentiates from the obvious comparison point, It. The execution failed. For example, if you're going to postulate that an item made with a child's love is significant, shouldn't the obvious parallel item be significant in the same way? Instead the second MacGuffin falls by the wayside, forgotten.

Generally speaking the directing and acting and even CGI was competent if not better than competent. It wasn't a waste of my time, it was just disappointing.
