Never finished it. As a lover of Sebastian Stan (and some of the other actresses) it was not enough to get me to finish the film.
I really wanted to like this movie, it looked interesting, but I just couldn't get into it. I wasn't a fan of many of the characters in this film.
Just like the novel, the movie feels like an unfinished story. This movie has some strong acting and really depicts the eery vibe of the book. It is, however, a tale with no surprises, and though that isn't the fault of the movie since it is based on a book, I question why someone would go to the trouble of making a movie out of a boring story in the first place.
hard to watch due to the fact that i wanted to choke mary myself. Overall the movie is not intriguing enough for me.
One of my favorite books. This did a damn good job of transferring Shirley Jackson's story to movie format. I still prefer the book over the movie.... but worth the watch when you are feeling like an outcast in the world.
