    The main kid was a bad actor. Script was bad...

    What he should have just said was you start the movie with a J.K Rowlings feel and you end up with a Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children feel which to me is awesome if you like eclectic fairytale horror. Definitely not for innocent minded children.

    Gosh kids are such Cream Puffs these days. Compare the fear in this to a kids horror like Something Wicked This Way Comes or Poltergeist.

    This movie isn't for adults, I should have known that before watching it, I found it very stupid and the kid was very annoying

    I didn’t like the poop jokes. I liked it for once, and then it was repetitive and annoying. The baby body was disturbing and a bit funny at first but then it was felt a bit like a waste of screen time? But it was still a great film! Another thing, the main character, the boy, should practice fake crying? Idk, it felt too plastic and false like he was trying not to laugh? It didn’t impact the film in any bad way, it just felt a rough and I couldn’t help noticing it in each scene he was forced to cry in (it felt like that; forced)

    Unbearable movie to watch. Main character is a dipshit useless nerd doing retarded shit all day. Does anyone remember, when kids used to watch power rangers, "teenagers with attitude" like Zordon would say and not fucking useless nerds? Do a horror movie with a strong character, not a movie, that is scary just because the character is a fucking scared nerd.
    Jack Black was the only good part in that movie.

    As someone who studies and dables on the occult ... There was stuff here that it was too much for weak-minded kids. If your kids get scared easily dont watch it, but if your kids can take it, its ok to watch

    Also the occult aspect (symbols) are surprisingly advanced for a movie

  • cantbeleveitsnotnaru
    cantbeleveitsnotnaru 17 days ago

    As an adult who cant deal with horror movies, I really appreciated this "dip your toes in" kind of movie. I went to see it specifically because it looked like it played that line. And alone. As an adult. And there were some creepy uncomfortable parts that didnt make me feel like a complete wimp.
    I would also have to agree that the humour really pulled me out of the experience.
    But it was a fun film. I have been enjoying Jack Black in his more calm roles.

    Yay! I loved this film. Great fun, went with my nephew, 12 years old, he was jumping up and down when we left the theatre, loved it!

  • SparklyShadow17 Supernatural warrior

    I also don't understand why anybody found this movie scary. The dolls and the Necromantic act of bringing the antagonist back to life was the only scary part about this movie. Other than that, nobody complained about any of Tim Burton's movies. Those were just creepy.

  • SparklyShadow17 Supernatural warrior

    I wish someone did a theological review on this movie... There are many allusions to Paganism...and the dark arts and the ideology of real sorcery.

    American kids must have come a bit soft, because I've watched it yesterday here in Spain and yes, one kid jumped a bit in a jumo scare moment, but the others were laughing and excited and having a great time, and none of them were scared, much less scared to tears!

  • Tysen Steffler
    Tysen Steffler Month ago

    I know its a kids movie but the parts at school were really aweful and i think i would have this same opinion as a kid watching this because it takes all the originality it had and just locks it up so we can have a scene at his school where suprise suprise he gets bullied and is made fun of for being a nerd and he makes friends with the popular kid and suprise suprise the kid exploites him ive seen this done so many times and if i was a kid id probably feel similar because of how overused this plot is especially with other movies being competely based on this. other than that it was a good kids movie

    I did not really like the film that much, maybe because i am too old, but i believed the end was a bit rattled off. The acting was great and the storyline too, but the story was build to the end and then the end was quick over and a bit disappointing.

    I feel like this is one of the better book adaptations there was more Eli could bring upon from a small children's book and put on the big screen by the way the book's pretty good.

    I'm so glad to hear that the movie is good; the book was one of my favorites when I was growing up. John Bellairs was writing top notch horror stories for kids before Goosebumps & Are You Afraid of the Dark? even existed. I really hope that the success of this film means that we'll see more of his stories on the big screen; I've always wanted to watch the film version of The Curse of the Blue Figurine.

    Was it just me or did anyone else notice the movie had very subtle foreshadowing? In the beginning of the film when the kid gets off the bus with his uncle, in the background there’s a sign mentioning the eclipse that later became a huge part of the ending. Then somewhere in the middle when the boy was walking down the hall with the flashlight looking at the pictures on the walls, there were images of demons tricking people as well as a rat and a lady

    My buddy the poop jokes are ment for kids not for you. You got to remember this movie was not made only for adults but mostly for kids. Why is it the reviewers don't understand that? 😒

  • Carmen Dooms
    Carmen Dooms 2 months ago

    You gave Venom a C-, and yet you give this a B? I'm the exact opposite of your opinion, I'd give this movie a C- and Venom a B rating. House begins interesting enough but I got bored Midway into the movie and the ending was a snore. I loved the action in Venom and while some parts were choppy, overall I think Venom was a worth going to see film. I don't want to give away any spoilers so I won't explain what caught my attention most in the storyline of Venom but it's truth in plain sight. The House is encouraging others to get into the occult, and is basically saying that it's okay to be a little weird if you want to try dark magic spell's go for it and just do it! Not exactly the message I'd want my children to receive.

    This film lacked focus. The story was poorly told. You just sit in the theater noting everything that happens in the film without wanting or rooting for any of the characters to go on this surreal journey. The comedy almost keeps you involved until the ending which is just weird, but not in an interesting way, just stupid and obscure. I left the film thinking their could have been an interesting film here, but it felt like the story process was rushed and didn’t connect any of the characters to the adventure. Because of this it failed to keep me entertained.

    The movie contains black magic and occultic themes if you want to teach your kids it's ok to stray from god for power, take them to see this. Only a mature person can watch it and not be influenced.
