My girlfriend knows the writer-director, Ari Aster, so we went to support him and hopefully enjoy the film. Um, not so much. This is one of those horror pictures that raises a lot of "Why didn't you do this?" questions and it can't answer them. The craft of the various guilds on the picture is good but for the writing and direction (not that the direction is bad, it just fails to grasp the script issues). https://www.imdb.com...ref_=fn_al_tt_1
Milly Shapiro has a face made for horror films. Will she be able to capitalize on it?
The film is a descendant of "The Shining" and "Rosemary's Baby" and has a tone and pace that recalls "Blue Velvet." Sadly, any of those is better.
