ONLY for Lin Shaye
1 May 2020 | by fabgirl-61827See all my reviews

I will watch Lin Shaye in ANYTHING! She is amazing and always nails the character. That said, even she cannot save this movie.

I think this is the second review I've ever written because I feel like the horror genre is so hard to review! There are so many different types of films and, honestly, horror movie aficionados are kinda snobby, lol, we all feel like critics!

This one started out strong, I was excited, I thought ok, wow, this one is gonna be good... up until just past the halfway point and then I don't know what happened but they lost me and I couldn't be more disappointed.

It's very frustrating because half the story was there and the acting was great (a big deal to me) and, Lin Shaye! Hello! But it fizzled out and I was so irritated I had to come here and write this review.

Maybe I'm missing something but I just didn't get it after about two thirds of the way thru. For reference, to give you an idea of the types of movies I like - because it's so hard to try and find a good horror movie that is in my wheelhouse - I very much enjoyed these disturbing horror films, The Platform, Pet, Ghostland and Midsommar, fun horror movies like Tucker and Dale VS Evil and especially LOVED Final Girls with Taissa Farmiga, I adore AHS, loved Tusk, Hunt, Waxwork, any old school 80's slasher film and, of course, ALL of the Insidious movies and The Conjuring franchise, as well. I could probably go on all night but that gives you a small idea of what I like in order to determine if you might want to trust my judgement and give this movie a pass.

Hope this might help others trying to find something good to watch!
