Before I start, I’m not sure if this fully counts as a horror, but I found it while looking for horror movies and it’s got some horror sides to it, so I’ll go for it. ‘After India’s father dies, her Uncle Charlie, who she never knew existed, comes to live with her and her unstable mother. She comes to suspect this mysterious, charming man has ulterior motives and becomes increasingly infatuated with him.’ Two interesting pointers, written by Wentworth Miller and was the last film of Tony Scott. Saying that, I still didn’t really like the film..

It started off very very arty, but I kept with it, it sounded like an interesting movie, a family member you never even knew was there suddenly arrives and the family is changed. I also thought it had a brilliant tagline, ‘Do not disturb the family’, it had a lot of potential and for some, it probably fulfilled, for me, it didn’t. If I’m honest, I can’t really put into words why I didn’t like it, it had its moments but I didn’t really enjoy it. It might have been that it had a really large arty feel to it, like not a lot of dialogue, inanimate objects were shown on camera for a long amount of time, I’m not sure, because I really was quite excited to watch this. The whole story of it really intrigued me but I didn’t like it. Maybe I wanted more, I’m not sure. I didn’t hate it but it wasn’t like ‘it was alright’, like it had moments but that was about it. I’m just mellow about it, finding it really hard to explain how I felt about it. Basically, I just didn’t really enjoy it.

The good things about it? The uncle. He was very cute and charming…through most of it anyway.

I guess this film was just quite slow, and built up to nothing. I had high hopes for this film, that just did not happen. Everything I’d read about it said how creepy and weird and disturbing it was but it definitely wasn’t any of that. Maybe that was my fault for reading about it, but even just the cover kind of made me think it might be quite a good film.

I think the problem with it was, it was very artsy, and built expectations up that it just never answered throughout the entire film. Some parts were creepy, like the killings and hiding the body and all that and I liked Charlie, but that was about it. Without all that, it was just a slow slow movie. Sorryyyyy.

Wentworth Miller

Sorry Wentworth, I like you but not this…
