Another Stephen King story that looks so pedestrian, you wonder how it's going to last more than 10 mn or evoke any feeling but boredom... and you keep wondering well into the movies unfortunately.
Marred by an unoriginal and predictable script, some of the most mediocre acting I've seen outside of Youtube in the last 10 years and constant screaming, the movie doesn't get much from Vincenzo Natali's beautiful shots.
I went into this without high expectations, and was surprisingly intrigued for the first 3/4 of the movie. Unfortunately, the ending was a letdown by not following what was previously established in the film. Also, I'm shocked that Patrick Wilson agreed to do this, in what will no doubt be the weirdest role of his career, aside from that one random and completely unbelievable episode of Girls, where you're supposed to buy that his character is completely infatuated with Lena Dunham.. The only other actor that I recognized was the kid from Bunk'd (I have kids lol), who gave a surprisingly much more tolerable performance than his annoying ones on that show. So to summarize, not a bad flick if you're bored, browsing Netflix, and in the mood for something creepy, but don't expect to be blown away.
It's alright. Reminiscent of Lost.
to see which of your friends have seen this movie!
