    The Night House

    ★★★

    Far away from its desired potential, THE NIGHT HOUSE, shaking, stands as David Bruckner's chaotic take on the "elevated horror" subgenre that has taken the film scene by storm over the past few years. Initially, it creeps; the narrative of grief and unstable mental health roping the audience into the psyche of Rebecca Hall's Beth.
