The Night House

The Night House ★★★★★

Well executed tension that pulls in the viewer was a great way to symbolize the way Beth (Rebecca Hall) is constantly being pulled into the reality of her deceased husband. Constantly being pulled into horrific thoughts and other worldly behavior she did not expect of him. So much of what is horrific in the movie in regards to the sound design, the camera using jump scares to signify a shift in Beths understanding of her current and past world, and pauses between characters when they interact to show how Beth is determining if she should remain in her current reality to find answers or shift into an unknown one to discover a form of peace that is unattainable. Great usage with some of the horror genres short comings in regards to scares, ghost, and a haunted setting to explore someone trying to decide how to make peace with their grief.
