Starts out great but then goes nowhere. Movie directed and acted by women who are not handy around the house; they need a man in their lives, like me.(I'm handy) The portable heater should have been plugged into a fault interrupt circuit so that it doesn't trip the house circuit breakers/fuses.(and doesn't electrocute someone in the bathroom. In addition the lights should not have gone out any way, the heater would have been plugged into a duplet in the wall which is always a different circuit from the lights. Even if it wasn't, why didn't she go and reset the breaker immediately instead of trying to get around with a candle? And when the daughter got caught up in the hall that kept returning her to where she started, like what happened to Thor in "Thor, Ragnarok". She should have broken through a wall a lot sooner than she did. And wasn't that crazy that the hall got smaller like that 13th? floor or was it 7 1/2 in "Being John Malkovich"? And the grandmother that shed her skin and was black underneath like Scarlett Johansson's character in "Under the Skin".
1. Where was Granny for those 3 days?
2. What was under the bed and why didn't Emily Mortimer get a flashlight to see what it was and if she was too scared to do that then why would she stay in the house? The movie could have ended right there with everybody high-tailing it out of the house to the nearest bar.
3. Why was it called "The Relic"?
4. Why did they show Granny's ass?
This movie is just a mess.
Never was a big fan of Dolph but he was great; he definitely carried the movie to a higher level. There were a lot of quirky characters in this movie contrasted to 2 dimensional personalities in most B movies. I don't consider this a B movie, though.
Watchable and rewatchable.
A must see supernatural thriller, even though most of the elements of the story are borrowed from other classic horror/sci-fi movies they were put together with good direction, acting and production. It's a story well told which is what a good movie does. Don't miss it.
Is there a set up for a sequel? Find out.
So bad hell would be more entertaining. First, the acting was high schoolish, I mean so over the top, (but not funny) it was downright embarrassing. And the script was plain vanilla, not helping the amateur actors look good. I assume from the car, the movie was set in the 20's or early 30's but the costumes were nondescript and the women's hairstyles were modern. Elizabeth Barton, who plays Jessica in the 2nd scene, is riding in a convertible and her hair shows it. At the house she changes clothes but doesn't comb her hair; it was so scraggly that it was distracting for the next hour. The character George Walker Jr. had a mustache and goatee that was right out of the circa 1890's old west. One reviewer said the movie was a parody but there wasn't one funny scene. I don't understand how the low low budget movie got financed. I imagine that a good part of the budget was allocated to bribing the "professional" reviewers. The one twist to the movie, no,no,no, there was no twist to the movie; you know in the first 15 minutes who will survive. This horror movie was really a horror of a movie.
I love zombie movies and this one was pretty good except for the ending. I like happy endings and this one was bittersweet. Also, I didn't understand the very last scene. I won't delve into the specifics but you'll understand when you see it. Now this might be a stretch but you could almost call this the 3rd installment in a trilogy, that being The Descent, because the zombies are just like those in The Descent - frosty white skin, skinny, naked, blazingly fast moving, and blind. There were a few stupid moves by some of the characters that I had to knock a half a star off the rating. The little girl in the movie was great, I'm sure we'll be seeing more of her in the future.
