My Review:

So, I had no idea that this was a remake until my sister in-law and friend told me while we were at the movies. When I first saw this trailer, I knew I had to see it. It looked dark and awesome. I like most of the actresses here. Colin Farrell can be hit or miss for me.

Anyway, even the music in the trailer has that atmospheric touch. While the movie itself did have a nice atmosphere, it was not as dark as I thought it was going to be. Where was the darkness?????

There was betrayal I suppose? But it could have been better, and the way the trailer portrays some of the stuff is not how it is portrayed on screen. Most of the adult characters came off as wooden. I guess that’s how they are supposed to be during that time? The little girl, Marie, didn’t have a lot of scenes, but she was my favorite. I didn’t like Elle Fanning’s character in this movie, but she pulled off the character well.

It wasn’t bad it’s just I needed more betrayal and cruelty in this movie as bad as that sounds!
