    Somewhat belatedly, I decided to do the Hooptober challenge that a lot of horror fans on Letterboxd are known to do. And while mindlessly thumbing through the suggestions on Hulu, I came across this title and settled on it after not really jiving with anything else.

I mainly remember Pike as virtue personified in her role as Jane Bennet…
