BEWARE THE MOON REVIEWS
Damn. I had such high hopes for this film. I had heard of it for ages and always wanted to see it, but for some reason, I just never had. One of my best mates then tagged me in a post about it and we decided to get together and watch it, along with more horrors, but they will be coming later...
First, this one, "Hired to care for a reclusive elderly author (Paula Prentiss), a live-in nurse (Ruth Wilson) comes to believe her house is haunted."
I was very very sad when I watched this, it really was not that good. I had heard mixed things about it, I had read how some people loved it and then the next page, people would say it almost bored them to tears. The video my friend sent me also made a point of saying how creepy this film is and how it really gets under your skin.
I personally found this film kind of boring and very slow, and up until the end, I really thought it wasn't going anywhere. Like I just felt the story was on one level, and that was it, nothing about it was changing, it was as if it was just repeating the same day, over and over again. The only thing that seemed to change was the part of the story that Lily was reading, and even those were not that great...
It did have a few creepy moments though, the whole ghostly figures and noises, always go down well with me, those.
The best part of this whole film was the ending. Up until that point me and my friend had both said how we had no idea what was going on, and how we were literally so so bored out of our brains. These comments only got the reply "Well, change it then", from my parents - we said we couldn't, we were already half way through, and I feel we were both hoping it would get better...
Right at the end it did get a little better, I did like the end. The whole twist with the book and who Polly really was out of the book, I thought was good. Just right at the end was good. But the rest, nahhhhh.
I didn't like this film overall, I like the idea of it, and the concept, and the ending, but I really could have done with out the rest of the film, and that's saying something. Luckily, both films we watched after this were both a lot better than this one... Thank god!
Watching horror films since like 2003, when I could stand dead bodies..
