I have always enjoyed this movie. On of my favourites.
Brilliant movie jumped many times worth watching has good story to it
Great modern recreation of a Victorian/Edwardian gothic horror and tragic with its emphasis on children. True, there are some clichèd jump scares, but also moments of genuine terror and beautiful photography. If you are a fan of the ’Lady Cynthia Asquith Ghost Book’ era you will love this.
I liked it enough to watch it twice but it could have been scarier.
This film has an incredible atmosphere throughout but suffers from false jump scares. Jump scares are not scary as once a jump scare occurs, you are laughing with your friend one second later. What makes a good horror film is tension and suspense as it keeps the audience on the edge of there seat throughout. My negative for this film is false jump scares but I can't deny this film having some incredibly tense and suspenseful scenes even if sometimes it can feel like filler. The performances are all great and this film is lit beautifully.
