Good idea, bad movie
20 May 2018 | by sjalkarjadottirSee all my reviews

In a way .. this movie reminded me on "Changeling" .. which had a similar premise .. as in .. an imposter child (but without any demonic or supernatural context)

Now .. about the movie, why would i say it is "bad"?

The story itself is quite traditional, and a classic tale of replacing a loved one with a malicious imposter .. kind of a tale to explain changes in character, estranged friends or family members etc. ... but the movie falls into so many tropes and pitfalls.

The main one is .. as in sooo many suspense and horror movies .. the bad communication between the characters. We are to believe that the only exchange of information is the one we see .. when the story jumps over several days, if not weeks. So either the family really doesn t talk much at all, or they manage to avoid any deeper topics completely.

The time we do see them communicate, they do their very best to NOT tell each other anything informative about something very important that had just happened in their life. I find such behaviour too much to believe in most horror movies, hence ... lazy; - because it makes the story avoid more complex and intelligent ways to still put the protagonists in danger.

Instead we get a very stereotypical .. very 101 story without surprises.

Its a shame .. all in all, i found the "Changeling" more disturbing and in a way .. suspenseful than "The hollow child" .. considering that Changeling is a crime/drama .. and Hollow Child is suspense/horror .. this is not a very good thing.

The acting was OK, but the characters were way too one dimensional and stereotypical.

I am afraid to say that i would rate this movie below average for utmost laziness. It is one among thousands .. without any outstanding quality.
