The Cradle: Really, really, really bad
10 February 2018 | by See all my reviews

I saw a review, a 1/10 review with the tagline "I had to stop watching". Now I hate that crap, I'm a firm believer of if you don't watch a movie all the way through then you have no right to judge it.

I stand by that, but often I feel the desire to walk away. This is such a film, but I did finish it.

It tells the story of a young couple and their newborn baby moving into a new home that's heavily isolated. The pair have to contend with a possible supernatural force and her suffering from postnatal depression.

Starring Lukas Haas this is a mercilessly boring movie which shouldn't be considered a horror but more of a thriller, that isn't exactly thrilling.

Excessively dark, mundane beyond belief and a terrible plot all come together to make The Cradle.

The Good:

Nope

The Bad:

SO boring

Weirdly dark all the time

Terrible plot

Things I Learnt From This Movie:

The creators may well have seen Evil Dead
