Greta ★★★

55/100

Halfway through: “I’m sorry, but you can’t elevate a generic ’90s X-from-hell thriller just by casting Isabelle Huppert as the X.”

By the end: “My bad, you can absolutely elevate a generic ’90s X-from-hell thriller just by casting Isabelle Huppert as the X.”

Also features one minor but satisfying subversion of this genre’s expectations, involving a character who clearly “should” die yet repeatedly does not. But you’ll have to endure some remarkably clunky act-one dialogue, and you’ve seen 95% of what follows at least 195 times.
