Good Movie
9 August 2020 | by jadediamondSee all my reviews

I Carly star Miranda Cosgrove stars as Rose Halshford, a college student whose life is upended when her mother commits suicide and her workaholic father Jerry Halshford played by Donal Logue (Quinn from Blade/ Harvey in Gotham) decides to move them across the country to a fixer upper house and Rose begins to experience strange things in the house which has a dark secret of its own.

Miranda did an amazing job starring in this movie. I'm glad they had her play a college student because she looks too old to play a high school student again. She looked like she could be a college student. The cute Austin Butler played Noah Henry, the guy who is working on fixing up the home and has a thing for Rose. Her neighbor the somewhat obnoxious Leila Markby played by Jessica Grant whose upset because her parents are getting a divorce and Tom Sizemore's quiet performance as Leila's dad Howard Markby.

It's a pretty good thriller and reminded me of movies like the 2012 The Pact and 2016 The Boy. Rose's dad is an architect who works alot and leaves Rose alone alot in a creepy house. Due to being traumatized by her mother's death and being forced to take a leave of absence from Stanford, prior to the events of this movie, Jerry had Rose in therapy and on medication afraid she would share the same fate as his wife and suffer from schizophrenia. So when Rose tells them of seeing things, her nightmares, or objects disappearing and reappearing, it's hard for him to believe her.

With this movie, the characters and suspects are shown and while the movie plays on, the viewer begins to pick who's the possible guilty party. Are these figments in Rose's head? Is she really nuts and imagining things? Is it the cute guy constantly popping up? Is he real? Is it the neighbor next door who had a connection to the house's dark secret? This movie leads you in one direction and shocks you by going a different direction. I wasn't surprised due to being desensitized by a stranger than fiction real world. But I still enjoyed the film.

I don't know exactly why but one of my favorite scenes in the movie was when the younger cast members are in the living room talking about the house's dark past and when the conversation could have went one way, the conversation was led back to a mature conversation which focused on the plot at hand.

I also liked how Noah and Rose's relationship was played out. Was he a figment of her imagination or was he too good to be true? It wasn't rushed and very tasteful and organic.

The movie was very realistic like it could happened in real life which it probably has and this is how rational human beings would react and handle this type of predicament. I enjoyed it and would watch it again. I liked how the actors played these characters in a natural way and no one tried to out act the other. It was a really good film with a good script, a great cast, and was well directed. I really liked it.
