STORY – 1
DIRECTOR – 1
ACTOR – 1
MUSIC – 0
CULT – 0

VERDICT – 3/5

 
PROS –
1) A compelling performance from Carla Gugino as Jessie. The audiences will sense the entrapment along with the main protagonist just like Rear Window (1954).
2) This movie is neither a survival film like 127 Hours (2010) nor a slasher film like Saw (2004). This Stephen King‘s story is about a sexually abused woman fighting her childhood nightmares and finally coming out triumphantly.
3) Carel Struycken as “the man made of moonlight”.

 

CONS –
N/A
