I have been meaning to watch this. I've heard many good things about it. That it's not your typical horror movie. It's a slow burner with a different style to it. That's it doesn't really on jump scares, but it tries to be genuinely creepy as hell. This looks to be the first outting for writer director Robert Eggers. I swear a lot of first time directors are really making a name for themselves as ... read more

This movie was not really a high priority for me but since it was recommended by another listal member and since it seemed to be intriguing, I thought I might as well check it out. First of all, even though the poster looked pretty good, at the same time, it gave away too much information and was still rather misleading. Anyway, even though the damned thing didn't really blow me away, it still tur... read more

A colonial family leaves plantation life and attempts to reap their harvest on a fledgling farm at the edge of an imposing ancient New England forest. Soon, superstition and dread set in as food grows scarce, a family member goes missing, and the children's play takes on a frenzied and menacing undercurrent. As they begin to turn on one another, the malevolent machinations of an ethereal presence from within the woods exacerbate the growing corruption of their own natures.

A good movie

“This movie was not really a high priority for me but since it was recommended by another listal member and since it seemed to be intriguing, I thought I might as well check it out. First of all, even though the poster looked pretty good, at the same time, it gave away too much information and was still rather misleading. Anyway, even though the damned thing didn't really blow me away, it still turned out to be a very beautiful and well made vintage horror movie. Furthermore, a tale about witchcraft works much better when it is set in this time period since superstition was really common back in those days. Finally, the cast was also pretty good, especially the kids. And, yet, I never really cared much about this story though. I mean, it was creepy enough and they didn't go over the top lik” read more

Disappointing (45 movies items)

" One of the worst, most boring movies I've ever watched. Possibly the worst movie in this list."

Elokuvapäiväkirja (199 movies items)

"8.11.2017 Ihan viihdyttävä mutta makuuni turhan puuduttava historiallinen perheruama, jossa puritaanit alkavat sekoilla huolella keskenään. Totta kai, koska uskonnollisten hahmojen täytyy genre-elokuvissa aina olla tekopyhiä. Hahmot ovat liian ohuita ja vertauskuvallisia, jotta tapahtumista jaksaisi kiinnostua loputtomasti. Miljöötä ja musiikkia taas käytetään osuvasti. Kauhuksi en tätä kutsuisi, vaikka ymmärrän genreluokituksen kannalta, pikemminkin kyseessä on (tulkinnanvarai"

"2017/05/31 @home on DVD from library Slow-burning horror, but that also made it feel slow and boring at times. Worth the watch, but wouldn't need to see it again. If it was an option, I'd have ranked this 6.5."

BradWesley123's Movie Journal- June 2016 (30 movies items)

" DVD- 1hr. 32min. First Viewing It does contain some of my greatest issues with indie-horror films (style and vagueness in place of character development and story), but it's made so well, with so many quality thrills and style, that its worth a look. The cast is strong, with Anya Taylor-Joy giving a breakout performance, but this is a director's movie and Eggers shows off quite well, even with the problems I mentioned."
