2016, PG-13 Kate Bosworth, Thomas Jane,Jacob Tremblay
So I wanted to see this when I first saw the trailers. I couldn’t get it from Netflix, and I can’t afford to buy digital movies unless I know I already like them and they are too much to rent in my point of view. I have an app called Stream Dor I got through my amazon
kindle.Then it was free now they charge 1.99 but find it worth the price. as usually when I can’t find a movie on netflix, this app has it, Old or semi new. If they don’t its only a matter of time (you could always let them know you are looking for certain movies.) Also if you are learning another language, you can watch movies in other languages on here! purchase the app here
Which is what I did to watch it. The copy I found was in German (or something that sounded like it) Frankly you can figure out what they are saying even if you only know a few phrases in a language. I find it interesting to hear the different languages around the world. Plus you may learn something. Sadly there were no subtitles on this one of any sort.
So this I think was similar in a way to another movie, or at least reminded me of another. A couple lose their son (I think he drowned in the tub) and they adopt a young boy who’s dreams and nightmares manifest. He dreams of their dead son and they end up able to hug him. It’s a solid manifestation. The boy’s biological mother (which I think was in that hung show with Jane) gave him u for adoption as she was sick. I believe she is the scary creature in the movie. I don’t scare easily but when this thing first (and maybe even the second time) showed up I think I may have given off a scared noise or maybe cuddled up to my pillow more.
Would it be have been worth seeing in the theater? Not likely. I did like the creature though. It was eerily creepy gave me a start at least. I think its worth at least one watch be sure to turn off the lights while you watch!
