I was not supposed to write a movie review about it but I couldn’t go to the cinema this week so I couldn’t write a movie review on a new movie that is out at the cinemas. Anyways, I often do quick movie reviews on my snapchat, you can add me, my username is joyabouzeid.
I was not sure what to expect when I first watched this film, I didn’t know if it was going to be good or really bad but honestly, I ended up really liking it!
The story itself is really okay, nothing that impressive but I like how it was developed and constructed and I liked how the writer genuinely incorporated Jessie’s past throughout the film. I also loved the characters: I loved the character of Gerald, he is so annoying hence, made the movie even more interesting and I loved the moonlight man, he is such a creepy, scary and interesting character, his story is very intriguing and worth making a movie about!
Nevertheless, the film is not scary and did not keep me at edge of my seat even though it contains a few stressful moments. The main reason why I liked it is because the acting is good: Bruce Greenwood’s performance as Gerald and Carla Gugino’s performance as Jessie are really moving and amazing. Their acting is very believable and I didn’t feel like they were self-conscious or aware of the camera.
On top of that, I really enjoyed the gory scenes!
To conclude, this movie is not the best horror/thriller film I’ve ever watched, however, I do think it is worth watching and is super entertaining; it is a nice movie to watch at night while drinking tea or hot chocolate!
That’s it for this film review, don’t forget to give this post a ‘like’ if you enjoyed reading and to follow my blog.
