The first half was genuinely scary. I bought into the atmosphere, the suspense, the acting, the use of color and blending of dreams versus reality. But the last 20 or 30 minutes felt rushed and lame. The ending wasn’t nearly as scary as it felt like it should have been given the build up.
The acting was so atrocious that I almost turned it off. The story itself was boring, and the plot was messy, although some moments were freaky if you ignored the bad acting. Use of colour was the best part(ish). Seriously, why does this have such good reviews? Also, the sound mixing was awful. The music was entirely too loud (in a lame attempt to be spooky?) so that the dialogue being drowned out (not that the script was worth hearing anyway).
I love the soundtrack and it’s visually interesting, but it’s a bit slow and doesn’t evoke any real emotional attachment to the characters. It almost, but never quite gets there, so you’re left wondering why anyone did anything in the film.
I really wanted to love this, but Lawrence was just shrieking most of the time. At first this wasn’t a problem as it seemed to be going somewhere but then it was just chaos and the end didn’t give justify the chaos. It’s a shame, really.
