Quotes

[last lines]
Jenn: [leaving a note] For a lot of my life, I've struggled with being believed. The truth doesn't always come with a receipt. Sometimes all we have is our word.
Jenn: There's no way for me to show you the things that I can tell you. That there's a monster here taller than any man I've ever seen, twice as fast in water as it is on land, and it bleeds black blood. For a week I've run from it and hid from it, but not anymore.

User Reviews

 
Intense!
25 October 2019 | by AnsangoSee all my reviews

Sweetheart is by far the most underrated horror film of the year. It has an interesting premise and has one of the best creature in a while in horror movies.

PROS.

1. Beautiful cinematography 2. Tense Atmosphere 3. Interesting premise 4. Brilliant acting by Kiersey Clemons 5. Direction

CONS.

1. Even though it's short in runtime, it's still feels a bit long due to its dragged 2nd act. 2. A lackluster finale 3. There was huge potential in the premise and it wasn't utilised properly.

Overall, a very intersting movie and a must watch for horror movie fanatics. I think there should be another movie where the origin of creature should be explained. Dunno, would be an interesting idea for a sequel.
