Well, granted I was lured in by this 2019 thriller's movie cover/poster, and I actually had no idea what the movie was about or who was in it. The movie seemed like a horror movie, little did I know that it was a mere thriller, so I sat down to watch it.
And "Widow's Point" was a swing and a miss from director Gregory Lamberson in terms of entertaining me. Sure, the movie was semi-watchable, but it was very, very slow-paced and rather uneventful. And when something did happen, it was just something bland which made me merely shrug my shoulders at best.
For a thriller, then "Widow's Peak" was stale and generic. The storyline was very scripted and predictable, which most definitely didn't add an ounce of enjoyment to the movie, to be honest.
What did work for the movie was the fact that Craig Sheffer was on the cast list. But even with him on the cast list it wasn't much of an uplifting addition to the movie, because he had very little to work with.
The special effects in "Widow's Peak" were not impressive. They worked as intended, for sure, but they were by no means impressive, especially for a movie from 2019.
I am rating "Widow's Peak" a mere, but generous, three out of ten stars. I wasn't impressed nor entertained. And chances of me returning to watch "Widow's Point" ever again are about as big of a me winning the lottery; and since I don't play the lottery, well...
