This isn't what I'd call a Thriller, or even horror really. I'd call this a supernatural romance. Emilia Clarke is amazing as always. The little boy is one hell of an actor considering he has so little dialogue. I really enjoyed it. It's atmospheric, haunting and while it has no jump scares there are some interesting twists.
Really enjoyed the first half of the movie. A lot of reviews said it was slow but i thought it was quite atmospheric. but it felt like some of the story was missing somewhere between the middle and the end. as though suddenly the writer changed... still worth a watch but like many films the ending was off for me.
It was okay. Slow and honestly no thiller or horror elements to me at all. I got more of a drama feeling than anything. Predictable ending.
The reviews for this movie are critical of this as a horror or thriller, but I don't think it's either of those things. I think it's far more gothic romance than anything, and I think it was a beautifully executed movie. You do need to pay attention, but I think it was a lovely film. It wasn't meant to be scary or thrilling by any stretch, and going in to this movie expecting to be scared will disappoint you, so don't go in looking for horror.
Painfully slow and predictable.
