Movie Review – The Turning

Movie Review - The TurningI really wanted to like The Turning. There were so many great aspects I should have loved it, but no. It was okay at best.

The stand-out feature of this movie was Finn Wolfhard. He was simply amazing. This kid can act. He shined in the movie It, and sparkled with a menacing force in The Turning. I was thinking to myself that he didn’t even need to open his mouth to get across his point.  His face says it all. I really enjoyed watching him.

Another great aspect was the setting. I fell in love with the house and the grounds. I’m pretty sure that if I were faced with being a governess to these two children, I would totally deal with the horrors just to live in that house.

Other than those two awesome parts, it fell flat for me. I took my little granddaughter to see it with me — it was her 7th birthday —  and she said she was ready for this. I took her in with trepidation, but she was a total trooper and only jumped twice.
