Let’s start with the first impression: wicked wind sounds, creepy children’s jewelry box music played by toy monkeys, terrifying dolls with a devilish stare frozen on their decaying faces, bloody message on the walls, decrepit 19th century house including the always present vast foggy grounds, a great fire, and of course, the ghost woman lurking in the background. Just when I thought I was bored with this, just when I thought I was unimpressed, JUST when I thought I had seen it all before (and, yes, we all have)— I remembered period horror films and all of their clichés are the best! If it ain’t broke, right? They always offer suspense! Tragedy! Atmosphere! Plus, being the Potterhead I am, I will follow Dan Rad wherever he may go (there isn’t an ocean too deep or a mountain so high…). Plus, aren’t we all curious about his film career post-Potter?
