If you’re after a more-in-depth look at some films and/or filmmaking techniques more than just a quick take on the films as we watch them, please have a look at our Film Analysis page.


WHAT WE THINK:

OUR SCORE:

3.5 out of 5 stars (3.5 / 5) – Very close to being a great film!

JUST A FEW WORDS:

This is one of the most interesting films of 2018. It’s an horror but it’s clever, it plays with the genre cliché and the audience. Even the trailer tends to be misleading (in a good way). It’s got a great atmosphere and some good performances (sometimes a bit over the top). The tempo is really good, patient and growing and it has got vibes of some other important authors and directors. Why only 3.5? The final act of the film.

PROS:

  • Colin Stetson’s music.
  • Actors.
  • Directing and Staging.
  • Tempo.
  • Cinematography.
  • The kid.

CONS:

  • Why that final act of this film? It goes from being a very good film to being a lazy one.
