Dividing Bar

The mansion in which this movie is set had a quite sumptuous, gothic look, the doll does get to seem quite creepy, and the plot (despite certain implausibilities) did carry me along. However, I was a little disappointed by the 'reveal' at the end, the overall narrative was quite undistinguished, and the 'jump scares' are such as any viewer familiar with the genre could see coming well in advance. A rather unremarkable, forgettable film - though maybe my horror palate has just become too jaded!

N.B. Jett Klyne only appears in old photos in this movie, not in person.
