“This is marketed as a horror movie, but I think itu0026#39;s more of anlean, tightly written mystery with horrific elements. The clues are so densely packed I couldnu0026#39;t leave to get a soda refill, for fear of missing some key point in the story.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eJena Malone is great as always, though her accent is a bit shaky in places. Janet Suzman is a standout as Mother Superior, as is Ian Pirie, who is genuinely frightening as Jenau0026#39;s dad.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eScenes jump back and forth in time and from dreams to reality in a disorienting fashion, but the final resolution ties up all…and I do mean ALL the loose ends in a way I found very satisfying.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eOther reviews have commented that too much of the mystery is given away early. I disagree. I could see the general direction it was going but was still surprised at the reveal.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eSmarter than the typical jump-scare movie that gets released every week, it will keep your interest and make you think. Just donu0026#39;t expect it to make you jump out of your seat.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eRecommended.”
