I always have faith in English films. English storytellers tend to be more serene and less anxious than the Americans. Their jokes are usually more subtle, effective, and quite long-lasting. Same as their scare tactics in horror films. Their so-called Grade B films show different classes of the society rather than different qualities. However, this film is an exception. It starts promisingly enough, then gets watered down steadily towards the meaningless ending. You could have seen the film in reverse in the Benjamin Button style and you would get a fine film. Investment in the character, earlier in the film, gets wasted. Nightmares and psychological episodes of Sophie get forgotten for the most part. Little flashbacks here and there do not help. We have seen several examples of good scary low-cost films. Today film-making equipments are of lower price, and filmmakers' skills are not tied with the money. I can watch John Carpenter's Halloween or George Miller's old version of Mad Max several times, and still have no clue what made them so good and so long-lasting, with such a low cost in a time of high-cost filmmaking. People behind this film should play less games, watch less choppy presentations, and return to the classics. It is all there to learn. I realize that there are a lot of people out there who care for moneymaking over filmmaking. But if you can achieve both, why not? Humankind should crave for betterment.
