ReelViews for 'Horror' movies
Screenwriter Max Landis has reduced Mary Shelly’s cautionary tale to a bad comic book, bereft of soul and intelligence.
Writer/director M. Night Shyamalan is his own worst enemy in the choices he makes bringing "The Visit" to the screen.
Starts strongly but the qualities that make the first 20 minutes harrowing drain away and the movie morphs into an unsatisfying excursion into fantasy-tinged horror.
There are things to like about "The Witch" but not enough of them to make it worth the price of an admission ticket.
