  1. I agree with your grading; I gave it 3 out or 5 stars only because of its filming style and set production. It kept me curious for half of the two and a half hours, then it became tedious, then absolutely silly. Its a shame because it had the ingredients for a top-shelf horror but it could not resist the usual vampiric implosion finale.

      Yeah it just became to implausible once the doctor showed his true identity. There is something about keeping you attention for that long, however.

    Great review. I did find the movie lacking at points.

  3. Yeah, this movie wasn’t as good as I was hoping it’d be. :/ At least there’s still “The Belko Experiment” to look forward to next month.

    Thanks for this review! I wanted to see it, but it helps to know there are themes of rape and incest–which are naturally upsetting and worth avoiding.

    Great review!
    I saw this over the weekend as well and I really had a hard time putting it to words after it was finished. There were things I liked about it, but like you mentioned, there were so many parts that were not necessary or just flat out didn’t make a whole lot of sense. :/
    Also, I am so glad that you pointed out that Jason Isaacs was none other than Mr. Malfoy himself because throughout the entire movie I kept thinking I recognized him but couldn’t quite figure out from where! lol

  6. I had high hopes for this film but after hearing a lot of mediocre review I think I might skip this one until its out on RedBox. Great Review! Hopefully Get Out will be the horror movie I’ve been waiting for!

  7. Great review! I’m actually surprised the first 90 min. Was so good. The trailer made me skeptical.

      It’s a really well-directed movie so when the plot actually made sense it was incredibly gripping. It’s just when the movie tries to pull the rug out from underneath you that you’re like “wait, what?”

  8. Nice review. Well thought out and detailed! Thanks!

  9. Nice work on this.
