The Night House

The Night House ★★★½

There’s a lot to love about this. For one, Rebecca Hall is so so good and gives probably one of my top 3 leading performances of the year. Also, this is one of the only horror movies to genuinely scare me during certain scenes in a long time (every time she was in the house I felt like I was going to die). Unfortunately though, the ending is pretty lackluster and abrupt that it kind of sours the whole movie and what message it could’ve had. 

May feel differently on a second watch knowing where it’s leading, but idk. What I do know is that David Bruckner is a really solid filmmaker who gets better with every project he does, so I can see his Hellraiser movie or whatever he’s doing next being terrific.
