I struggled with it a great deal but I think it was the series of reveals that won me over although I could have done with a couple more to maybe make it way ouuuuut more crazy !
I should have been clearer when I said ‘odd strange’ that this was more about the tonal imbalances I of the film. Slightly amateur Children’s film (accents in one family all over the place ie posh girl and two working class lads veering from northern accents to cockney) aesthetic v Almost Adult horror.
This brings up Wands question of Certificates.
Over here in UK it’s a 15 - I think on balance it could be a PG (the one below 15).
Ultimately I think it is a kids film and that was what I didn’t like about it but I did like it when it pushed for. Real horror.
I didn’t like much of cast either but I’m huge fan of Anya -I liked herPsycho style I investigation however breif They should have restructured the film around that.
I think in the end it tipped over from bad into good in my mind because it was a superior children’s horror and I didn’t want to be a curmudgeon lol
Also the other young actress Mia Goth is in the new Suspiria.
