Quotes

[first lines]
Elaine: [in her letter] My dearest father... I pray that you have not been consumed with worry in the time that has passed since I was taken. I write to you in the hope that you will put an end to my suffering on this wretched island. My captors inform me that if I am to survive, you must travel here alone with the means to purchase my freedom. That should a man of lawbe sent in your stead, it would seal my fate. Father, I grow weary.
Charles: [now reading it out loud] I fear our Lord no longer hears...

Interesting and compelling thriller
13 October 2018 | by crom-dubhSee all my reviews

Not sure why all the very negative reviews. While not a masterpiece, I found this pretty enjoyable. Yes, if you're expecting the in media res of The Raid you're probably in for a disappointment, as this is a bit of a slower burn. There are some pretty intensely violent moments but they are in the minority. No, it is not a perfect movie, but I think it successfully segues from period piece to horror film pretty well. Some people will probably have a problem with the fact that it isn't enough of one or the other. It's a difficult film to classify and there are some narrative holes. But I think it has enough interesting elements, stand-out scenes, and general intrigue to warrant a 7/10.
