George Hanna-Wilson’s review published on Letterboxd:
Why was Tilda Swinton in old man make up? Why was so much of this focused on this heavy handed plot about this old man and his lost wife? Where is the freakin horror? There are literally like two scary scenes in this 2 and a half hour movie. I guess the ending was supposed to be scary and shocking but I found it silly. Maybe I’m missing something here but to me this was an unfocused overlong mess. I love the original, it’s one of the greatest horror movies ever made. This one didn’t do it for me. Everyone else seems to like it though.
