This looks really chilling yet interesting. I don't normally like horror films but this seems intriguing.

I definitely want to see this one but I don't think I could watch this alone laugh.gif

Well this was a load of old shite. Boring and uninspired, it felt like a cheap horror that goes straight to DVD. The trailer makes it look so much better than it actually is!

It was full of tropes, I liked the ending. But a lot of it felt half baked. The creepy kids with masks that make up the marketing weren’t hardly even in it?

I HATED the ending!!!

I hated how they basically changed the leading character from Louis to Ellie and it didn't work at all. This was Louis' story, it was HIM that was the bad guy in the book and in Mary Lambert's movie. I don't get why ELLIE killed Rachel AND dragged her to the swamp. It was Louis' job. Awful.

I read the book this week so wanted to see the film to see how it compares - I commend them for changing some of it as I didn't see the changes coming, but it was disappointingly over-reliant on traditional horror tropes and yet still too restrained somehow. The book was scary because of how horrible and disastrous the chain of events turns out to be, I feel this one didn't quite have the same power Ellie dying instead of Gage was an unexpected choice and I commend them for that and the last scene was quite well done, although again I think the true horror of the grief was a bit brushed over and it was just an excuse because Ellie would look scarier as a zombie

Also..,those mask wearing kids were a bit pointless? laugh.gif They kinda just vanished after that one scene, I mean I guess they were spirits of other children that died as Ellie wears the mask later but it was a little unclear.
