Modestly enjoyable
18 May 2018 | by iantraderSee all my reviews

I don't watch horror. Predictable. And gore is just cheap schlock.

But I love circuses and sideshows. And there are many movies about them. First main introduction was Ray Bradbury's Something Wicked This Way comes which was made into at least two movies.

Anyway...

This one is all a bit predictable. It takes a while - i.e. too long - to get going and it changes protagonists half way through! Really! If you've one eye on the plot line it's a bit jarring.

It's def YA. Not just YA but childish YA. Sub 12 maybe. So although it has a great theme and some spooky moments, the childish parts really detract from the overall movie.

But nice characters, well played and a suitable music score by Ryan Shore.

But does the inane pop/hip hop music splattered throughout really appeal to the target audience? Really?

Yeah, I know that's twice I've said 'Really'.

I can't help but think how much better it would have been if it had aimed at a slightly higher age range or, at the very least, not been dumbed down so much. Hey ho...

So, if you're a young and unfussy YA, go watch it.
