As hot as 1990s Kathryn Newton is . . . this looks atrocious.

More Warm Bodies than Frankenstein.

That's
why Zelda Williams sounded so familiar!

This is out this week.

Did anyone go to the AMC or Regal secret screening last night, as this was the film that played?

how can Carla Gugino be in this and not rate billing in the on-screen credits? This will be the next Heathers or a train wreck.

The audience I watched this with today were dead silent. Zero energy in the theatre the entire movie, excepting for the one teenage girl laughed once at one thing.

Not only does it drag, but there seems to be all kind of missing scenes. Big moments are skipped over. The movie felt like an early cut being shown to test audiences to determine what's need to be done in the re-shoots.

The lead actress comes to life in the finale twenty or so minutes of the movie. There is zero energy between her and the monster, which results in her constantly having large passages of dialogue where she's explaining what's going on, because the movie can't figure out a way to show any of that.

Despite how colourful the movie looks, everything is flat, and monotonous in tone. None of the scenes have a creative spark of life. The movie is so ineptly put together that (again, because there seems to be a scene missing) that the ending makes it look like
Spoiler:
she faked her death in the fire, even though 100% sure its supposed to be she died and was resurrected.



Colossal disappointment.

Just saw this and thought it was a mess. Did they film half before the pandemic or something? Its like the director kept switching up the main character between scenes.

Spoiler:
At the end she dies in the fire but then lightning hit her gravestone and brought her back in zombie form. You can see a scorched part of her gravestone.
They also keep hinting at the mothers ear rings and never paid it off
