BEWARE THE MOON REVIEWS
This is the review you have all been waiting for, and if you weren't waiting for this or thinking you were waiting for it, it was just so deep, you wanted it but just didn't know it yet. Sounds real enough, right?! Right. This review is on the so called 'scariest film on Netflix', so called, may I add... "Madrid, 1991. A teen girl finds herself besieged by an evil supernatural force after she played Ouija with two classmates."
I had to watch this, had to, no other options, I had to, it was a must, and I tell you why. Veronica is meant to be the scariest film on Netflix, and people are watching it and not being able to sleep and one person, apparently, couldn't watch it all the way through at one time - and had to stop it to get himself back on track. I wish this film effected me like this, I really want to find a film that scares me that much - but Veronica is not that film. Trying to say this in the nicest way possible, I was fairly let down by this film. I wanted to sweat during this film, and I wanted to be so scared that when you jump you laugh like the evil queen from Snow White... I did not get that.
Veronica came out, I think, last Wednesday and I sat down and watched it the next day, I was that keen. Mum was off that day too, and somehow I talked her into joining me, even though I also told her the reason I was so keen to watch it is because it's meant to be so damn scary. Bless her, she watched it with me, she committed to it with me, she was stressed at the beginning but she still joined me. Shout out to my mum scaring herself silly for me.
Anyway, we are watching the film, and it's okay, it's a fairly good storyline, it's well acted and made, but that's it so far. Its got some tension running through it, some good tension, but it just wasn't that scary.
Wanna know a little secret? We even cheered a little we made it through half way, as we knew one poor sod hadn't... Yup, one of a kind right there.
WE DID MAKE IT THROUGH IT THOUGH. Me and mum made it through all of Veronica, and with no jumps at all, none. We did not jump once. We had to stop it at one point to eat, and mum was very keen to finish it... only to nod off about ten minutes later while watching it... Veronica is a slow film, it's kind of a slow burner, but in my eyes, it kind of burns its way out, the ending just wasn't as big as I wanted I guess. And mother did fall asleep during it, so that is also saying something.
I wasn't a fan of this film, and I think some of the problem was with how much hype it had behind it. It's not a bad film at all, I just wanted more than it gave me - most would disagree with me though, from what social media is telling me... It is a good teacher and teaches you not to use a Quiji board... even if the main characters don't listen... shame.
Watching horror films since like 2003, when I could stand dead bodies..
