The Moth Diaries Reviews

August 9, 2012
Way too serious for its own good.
April 19, 2012
Roiling with jealousy, suicide and latent lesbian urges, "The Moth Diaries" dances on the border between hallucination and reality without fully committing to either.

The Moth Diaries fails to frighten, titillate or otherwise engage the imagination.

Harron can do little with this bloodless drama, a shadow of such quiet vampire treats as "Let the Right One In" and "The Addiction."

Harron, a supremely intelligent adaptor who did wonders with the screen version of Bret Easton Ellis' American Psycho, simply doesn't have the chops to give this story the florid kick it needs.

Whither the filmmaker who gave us such memorable monsters as Patrick Bateman and Valerie Solanas, or such complex females as Bettie Page? Someone has apparently stolen the director's identity and is making movies under her name.

Lesbian desires, fears of mortality, and adolescent jealousies are all handled as bluntly as the unintentionally corny black-and-white flashbacks and gauzy dream sequences.

Defeats Harron's talent for exploring darkness on the edge of kinkiness.

Not enough psychology to be intelligently creepy, and not enough schlock to be viscerally scary.
