I don't want to give a bad review based on my sole experience, but I will. After all, this review is warranted and in no way, shape or form is it based on movies with similar premises...but it is.
I like bad movies; I really do. I dig really bad movies such as Troll 2, Silent Night Deadly Night 2, etc. These movies, at least to me, attempt something and in some way, it always comes out bad in the best way possible. This movie, The Attic, starring Elisabeth Moss, is terrible in the worst way.
It starts off interesting enough with a girl in the bathtub, which is always a good sign of a horror flick. However, it rushes things right afterward until you're wondering what happened and why.
Is the movie bad because of poor character development? Yes. Is the movie bad because of very poor acting? Yes. Is the movie bad because it's the same storyline that's been done time and time again? Yes.
I could almost look passed the bad acting because sometimes that actually makes a memorable movie. However, in this case, The Attic falls short to the point you could care less about the characters, and you really want to find the original script and tear it up before anyone, such as Lambert, decides to direct it.
I gave it 1 star only because I couldn't give it a 0.
