Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: There is tremendous visual craft and inarguable style here, but none of the discipline, the sense of pacing and proportion that would allow the filmmaker's creative instincts to soar rather than merely splutter.
Rotten: Verbinski inflates a story ready-made for a brisk Gothic shocker into a bloated, self-important mess.
Fresh: Verbinski's gothic psychological thriller is absorbing. It unfolds in a maze even Theseus would not escape. It will keep you guessing until the almost unbelievable ending.
Fresh: Verbinksi's atmosphere-building skills, however, are exemplary. He has such control over pacing and tension, audiences will be on the edge of their seats right up until the preposterous end.
Vu au cinéma, la cinématographie est époustouflante, mais on est loin de l'horreur. Ce film respirait plus le genre aventure qu'horreur, même si il se rends dans des détails gores et obscures. La finale, simplement magnifique.
This was a different type of horror movie. I liked it because you try through the whole movie to figure it out and you think you have it- then you're not quite sure...it was definitely different. Not in a bad way- just different. I liked it
Take the Cure
This film is so mysterious and beautifully shot with a very different style of Filmmaking and story development. This film does not give you all the answers you crave too easily. Instead, it maintains a consistent level of curiosity and anticipation throughout which encourages viewers to interpret and think about for themselves. This movie does not overuse any traditional jump scares that audiences expect from most horror films. This is both artfully shot and crafted and I hope to see more films like this appear in theatres.
