A Redundant Slow Thriller with Absence of Scares.
26 February 2020 | by Impartial-CriticSee all my reviews

I don't see the horror behind this movie, it feels to me - at most - like a slow haunted doll thriller with the lack of scares. The story is limited, a traumatized family moves to guest house where their kid, Jude finds Brahms the doll in the near forest and things starts to get weird around the family for not following the doll rules.

Nothing new here, the screenplay is dull and you can skip full minutes without losing any of the storyline, the character development is awful, the movie is well shot but with the lack of a strong plot it doesn't add much. I think it'd have been a very good film if it was summed into a short film because clearly if they wanted this to succeed as a feature film they could've gone through the trouble of coming up with an interesting new idea or at least a single twist in the story, I believe this movie is an effort and a chance gone wasted. over all it's watchable but won't be enjoyable unless you watch it in 2x speed.
