Gothic drama at it's best
30 June 2005 | by lthseldy1See all my reviews

I look at this movie more as a drama than a horror movie because I did not see a whole lot of scariness in this movie but I did love the acting all except the kissing of Maude and her uncle Sylas....gross, I'd rather kiss snails than kiss his lips. That part of the movie made me sick. But I loved the acting of the evil governess. It made me think of the movie "Flowers in the Attic" of the character of the evil grandmother. But I never figured out just what was wrong with her uncle. Why we went into bouts of insanity and then all the sudden calm down and look at everyone as if they were mad. It made me feel for the characters because each one played their part excellent. The ending of the movie was a big let down though. I did not expect this movie to end that way. But it is a good movie if you like Gothic movies. I even see some ideas taken from "Dracula" in this movie.
