Supernatural Suspense, Not Horror - and it's Good!
This movie is a clear case of genre confusion. It's a supernatural suspense, not horror. That means the story builds tension through good storytelling and character development. Supernatural stories involve paranormal elements, and the suspense is a slow burn, more Alfred Hitchcock. It doesn't depict violent, gruesome bloody acts which would be horror. It's also not a family/children movie. It's for thinking adults who want to figure out what's happening, why it happened, and how it's going to end. It's hard not to be fascinated by this movie. It has good scary elements. It's chilling, but not terror provoking. There's a deeper, subconscious connection to the mythology of "loss of soul," which is an actual condition. (Look it up, it's interesting) It delivers something very different. If you're looking for gore, you won't like this movie. It's smarter than that. It involves a functional teenage girl who is thrust into extraordinary circumstances - she's lost her soul, but is still alive. Now the fun begins! I read the reviews here and yes, there's no swearing or overt sexuality. This movie breaks some stereotypes, which is why I liked it. I didn't catch some of the nuances and honestly thought I had it figured out from the very beginning and then found out I was wrong. I enjoyed the surprise! If you can get past it being labeled horror, and if you like paranormal and supernatural, and just a Good Movie, you'll really like this one.
