Different, but Horror? Hmm.
1 September 2018 | by fatfil-414-451797See all my reviews

I would not class this as a horror movie. More of a psychological thriller with horror elements. It is a strange little movie, with some good performances, but as with many films these days, doesn't explain itself well. I don't think I'm giving away a spoiler when I say a young boy has a fixation with his grandmother, it's in the promos, But this is not really expanded on enough in the movie to make sense of. He is sent to an exclusive Boarding School and things start being a bit weird. The finale scene I just found puzzling, as there had been very little other reference to it in the movie. The young lead and main character does an excellent job in a difficult role, and helps to carry this to above average.
