While not a "horror movie" in the classical sense this film still was a good movie.
This cannot be categorized as a horror movie. It is one of the best movies I've ever seen. The acting is excellent and the story is haunting. Many of us can identify with the struggles of small town life, but this movie is about more than that. It is about lies, manipulation, courage, love, truth, and triumph over tragedy. It is very dark in some ways yet there are grains of humor here and there that can catch you unexpectedly. It is extremely well written and well directed and the actors absolutely knocked it out of the park. I highly recommend this movie.
This is a horror movie like Edward Scissorhands is a romance. ...I love Edward Scissorhands...My point is, this movie fucking rocks, no matter what box you wanna stick it in. Forget the genre. Watch the movie.
brilliant. sad. sweet. great film.
I love this movie! I’ve watched it so many times!! Great storyline. Perfect actors! Highly recommend!!
