This isn’t a scary film, but it is a scary film.
I haven’t a bad word about this film. To me, it was perfect from start to finish. My heart was in my throat from start to finish too. And that was thanks to two people, Dakota Fanning and Tom Cruise.
They play father and daughter and without them, this film wouldn’t have been anywhere near as good. I was completely terrified for them through the entire film and that is why this is a scary film.
The character development, particularly of Tom Cruise’s character Ray is on point throughout the entire film. The subtleties used are amazing. Several of the scenes will stick in your head forever.
If you haven’t watched this film then you need to. Now. Because I can’t be the only one to go through that. You all need to feel the same as what I felt.
This is one those films that you always remember. It’s a film you have to watch.
Was it worth the watch? YES
Would I re-watch? Yes
