Anyone looking forward to this? The trailer looks really good.

I saw the trailer in the cinema and it looks terrifying! shock

expatinscotland Sat 09-Jun-18 17:30:55

I can't wait! It's out in the US and getting rave reviews.

Dd wants to see this. I don't do horror so dh might go. The reviews seem very mixed so far, some loved it others hated it and said the trailer shows the best bits!

I have seen it and honestly don't understand why it's getting such great reviews. Toni Collete is good, I won't spoil it but suffice to say if you are of a nervous disposition you will jump at a few bits. I found some the scenes to be drawn out and wanted it to move along, some of the supposed to be scary scenes had a fair number of people in the audience at my screening laughing.

Oh and yes the trailer does show the best bits.

I loved it really interesting great story reminds me of some 60s films

I think like the witch it will split opinion

Lokisglowstickofdestiny Thu 14-Jun-18 23:49:04

I haven't seen The Witch, I'm not a great fan of horror really and thought that as it was rated a 15 it would be less gore and more thought than say Saw or similar. It was all a bit too obvious though and trying to be clever then in the last 15 or so minutes resorts to more traditional horror (and I'm not just talking about the naked old men!)

It went on and on.

Toni Collette was good but she always is.

Gabriel Byrne was like a lump of wood.

A lot of it was literally laughable.

Some good bits though.

Likisglowsstickofdestiny and JuicySwan with you all the way. It started off unnerving in a Sixth Sense type of way but the 'twist' was just lazy and very Dennis Wheatley. It certainly didn't really reflect the way the trailer pitched it...

It was a mash-up of genres and I don't get why it's got such amazing Rotten Tomato ratings????

Processedpea Sat 16-Jun-18 10:51:14

that's probably why i liked it, the dennis wheatley vibe

It was SO fucking awful. I had high hopes after the reviews but it was like a kind of poundshop Rosemary's Baby. Toni Colette is always good, Gabriel Byrne was like a lump of rock. People in the cinema laughed at the "scary" bits. confused

It’s an interesting film though - looking at the cycle of abuse - I think the ending just fell apart because it wasn’t scary enough

Disabrie22 Sun 17-Jun-18 14:30:42

It was Rosemarys Baby meets The Wickerman meets M.Knight Shylaman - there was laughter in the cinema too

Disabrie22 Sun 17-Jun-18 15:26:44

I wouldn’t call it awful though - it was complex with some interesting symbolism and dialogue and auberbly acted by Wolf and Collete

JuicySwan Sun 17-Jun-18 17:09:58

Laughter! Yes!!

There were a lot of teens in the cinema when we went so I wasn’t sure whether to put the laughter down to just silliness but yeah - especially the levitating bits had people guffawing.

shins Sun 17-Jun-18 17:57:40

I've seen genuinely scary films like The Orphanage and The Sixth Sense and The Others in the cinema and there was no laughter. It wasn't nervous laughter, it was full on guffawing- definitely a sign of a horror failure! The last 20 mins in particular...just ludicrous.

NewModelArmyMayhem18 Mon 18-Jun-18 08:11:13

I think I've been around too long to find many things different enough to really rate.

Pembrokedangler Mon 18-Jun-18 20:47:45

I've just been to see this and come out feeling a bit deflated after the rave reviews.

So, what should I watch then? What are the scariest films? Gore and mutilation just doesn't frighten me - I want something that'll get under my skin and make me afraid to turn out the light.

JuicySwan Mon 18-Jun-18 22:05:38

I loved Ghost Stories.

Processedpea Tue 19-Jun-18 08:21:08

Highly recommend ghost stories too
