Atom User Reviews for The Night House
This movie draws you into her grief and anger until you feel it too. So much more than a horror film. It keeps you thinking about it long after the credits rolls. Subtle and eerie and riveting.
Went in without having seen anything about the movie and was truly mentally scared. Been very long since a movie has done that. 10/10.
Not a scary movie a lot of suspense and at the end a twist on the story not what I had in mind but great story
Slow moving confuse fest. Loud noise scary
For the first 30 minutes or so it’s boring but as soon as you get deeper into what is going on you will want more and more even after the movie ends I hope they make a sequel maybe a prequel maybe about the husband how this all began I would love that
Just go see it!
Wtf did I just watch
Surprisingly really good! If you’re paying attention you’ll probably figure out the direction the movie is going, good amount of jump scares!
Slow build, with some jump-scares BUT a well, thought of storyline once it comes to fruition.
i almost fell asleep. it drags...alkt
Rebecca Hall’s admirable refusal to soften the brittle edges of her recently widowed protagonist in The Night House makes her a compelling variation on the usual woman in ghostly peril.
The Night House works as an exploration of grief because of Rebecca Hall’s incredible performance, plain and simple. But as a horror film, it overpromises early on and then fails to deliver on any chills that go beyond a jump scare.
Holding the entire movie together, Hall delivers an exceptional performance as a woman grieving, sliding in and out of reality. But her talents are eventually no match for a runtime that stretches things a bit and story beats that we have seen before.
