I honestly love a good scary movie, especially on or around Halloween time! So when my husband said I could choose any movie I wanted to see for our anniversary I knew I had to capitalize on the situation. You see, my husband hates scary movies...I mean he absolutely detests them. So generally we don't watch too many. So, being the sweet wife I am, I picked a scary movie. In my defense, this movie didn't really look too scary, and it avoided most of his scary movie must-nots: NO scary religious films, NO scary children, and absolutely NO exorcisms. Okay, none of those were involved so I did take some consideration on his feelings.
I was super excited to see this film. First, I love period horror films. Second, this movie was so beautifully shot, I just knew I was going to like it for that alone. Whilst I love a good scary movie I'll admit I scare easily. This movie WAS scary, but it was more gore-y than frightening. Which isn't a bad thing if you happen to like gore, which I do. The story line was interesting, but I did feel as though it was left somewhat unfinished. You got the general gist of what was happening, but not a ton of background information. It didn't have any super surprising twists, but it was still pretty entertaining. All in all, I'd say if you like scary, gore-y movies that are visually pleasing it's worth it to go see this movie in theaters!
Let me know what your favorite scary film is! XO
