The Little Stranger Reviews

  • Nov 30, 2020

    The Little Stranger revels in never giving too much away. It slowly builds suspense and creates a dark mood that Wilson/ Gleeson thrive in. Full of sophisticated shivers that make you feel a little strange.

    It was slow yet interesting and made me want to see what's going to happen next however I had to read the director's review to understand everything. The messages about the alter ego, social class and repression were clear though.

    Not a fan of period pieces but this was thorough and effective although incredibly slow as expected. Characterisation was good, unsure if it should be classified as supernatural scary because the scariest thing is the fact they didn't have the internet. Pacing was frustratingly slow, but even. It's 2/3 of the way through before they concur there's a presence in the house but the times state admitting that is shameful. Then the whole thing becomes about the guy trying to get married. I honestly don't know what happened by the end. And I can't get 2 hours of my life back.

    Like in all the best horror stories, the monster operates as a symbol of something wrong in the characters' lives. Since this is a Gothic horror story, it's a symbol of the past; the characters are haunted by their inability to let go and move on. As the film goes on, Farraday's motives and actions become more and more questionable, and you start to wonder whether you can really trust him as a narrator.

    With a slow pace and harrowing setting, this movie will keep you on the edge until the big reveal that is too subtle to notice.

    It doesn't offer much of what you want. That's all I can say.

    What an incredible WASTE of time, talent and money. A complete snooze fest - and don't expect some amazing ending, there isn't one.

    Decent to solid with good performances but drags a tad midway through.
