I 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.

Don’t miss your favorite movie moments because you have to pee or need a snack. Use the RunPee app (Android or iPhone ) whenever you go to the movies. (We've been doing this over 10 years now.)

RunPee.com owes RunPee Sis a huge debt of gratitude. She sees any movie needed with no complaints and has done so for ten years (even basing Thanksgiving and Christmas family festivities around the seeing films). In 2015 Sis ran the entire RunPee enterprise herself, while RunPee Dan, Jilly and Mom went traipsing off to Europe. Sis is the spider in the web holding the RunPee family together — besides being a funny, well rounded person, and a joyous pleasure to be around. Her favorite films start and end with horror (which thank goodness she’s happy to see, since most of us don’t have the stomach for it) — but also likes silly comedies, sad dramas, and musicals of all types. If you’ve used a Peetime for a scary film, you probably have RunPee Sis to thank for it.
Favorite movie genre: Horror, horror, and more horror. The more disturbing, the better. Period.
