In a good haunted house thriller, the architecture is destiny. Initially “You Should Have Left”, when Theo (Kevin Bacon) was a wealthy retired banker with a tabloid scandal of the past, his film-actress wife Susanna (Amanda Shepherd) and their six-year-old daughter, Ella (Avery Essex), The holiday home they rented for a trip to the Welsh countryside, you know in your bones that you are seeing a change in “The Shining”.
Part of the fragility of the design of the house. The great, huge, ski-lodge-Native-American set for the Overlook Hotel was a larger dimension than Stanley Kubrick’s films, here we’re sucking a fun summary of a place to see from the outside, like a gray designer modernist Bauhaus exclusive home. Inside it’s a huge wind network of light gray bricks and Scandinavian wood, pastel flickers and stretched corridors and rooms all look absolutely like you’re never quite sure where or what you’re connecting to.
It is, in other words, a haunted house that is far from being a terrifying haunted house from the image of your haunted house.
The place has a way of inspiring dreams. The polaroids are intercepted by a mysterious stunt figure that clings to the cane. Quite innocently in the middle of a wall, there will be a door and its next scene is gone and then back. The layout changes the place almost indiscriminately, making the place feel, a lot of the time, M.C. Feel like the home of Frank Lloyd Wright, drawn from its blueprint.
Yet the key element borrowed from “The Shining” is that the house not only oppresses its own ghosts, but also the people around you. It is Interaction With your monsters and making a home for them, it’s hard to tell what’s true and what’s not, what’s a ghost and what’s on your mind.
I don’t want the word “you should be left” to be better than this. Written and directed by David Cope, who adapted it from a 2017 novel by German author Daniel Kahlmann, it is a clever and in some ways a shooting for a Gothic mental thriller. In the hands of any other filmmaker, it could easily be a piece of hackwork. However, Kepp, who had previously collaborated with Kevin Bacon (1999 paranormal flash-cut vision thriller “Echoes of Straw” which was a mixed bag), directed this small genre with fluid and absorption efficiency. The film is cleverly shot (by Angus Hudson) and edited (by Derek Ambrose), so that you always feel like there’s something hidden in the side corners, but it’s scrubbed and flawless when you look at the next corner.
Theor’s wife and daughter hold a crack in how quickly his age holds, and the way Bacon holds his age shows a strange resonance. In At1, the actor is still shaking without body fat ounces, and with the same thick tousled hair he “dined” (which was 39 years ago), but his fine network of salt and pepper straw and crease now lends him the hue of an altar boy. Day, who is slowly creaking inside. The cinematic colors of Theo and Susanna’s significant relationship are involved with jealousy and Bacon and Seafrand make it come alive. Theo secretly monitors Susanna’s phone and computer (she knows all her passwords) and when she discovers that she actually has two phones, the listener shares her devastation.
We learn the story from Theo’s past, which gave him worldwide notoriety. He was acquitted of the charges against him, and when Susanna and their daughter talk about the bad thing that happened to “Dad”, it shows the movie’s smartwriting a “You should have left”, even the suggestion of sin is never less than human. . The movie will not disturb your dreams, but it will catch you and keep you toggled.
