  1. Mark's rating of the film The Haunting of Julia

    The film's opening sequence - an emergency tracheotomy - firmly sets the tone of unease throughout the whole film. Kudos to Mr. Hannan's lovely, intimate camerawork: His long, inspired takes of Ms. Farrow wandering throughout the house and walking through parks not only involves meticulous dedication but also establishes a quiet air of elegance tinged with a palpable sense of dread.

    julia thought of performing a tracheotomy on a choking child, but never thought of doing the HEIMLICH MANEUVER OR CPR. if she had done any of those things the movie never would have happened AND I WISH SHE DID. plot holes, messy writing, lowkey racism. insipid. its just mia with a constant moue bleeding and shivering while being yelled at a lot. inconsistent fake british accents. emotionally cold acting left me cold

  3. Laura Katherine's rating of the film The Haunting of Julia

    The aesthetic elegance of this movie caught me off guard. Very lovely, very creepy.

  4. --'s rating of the film The Haunting of Julia

    Sophisticated lighting, camerawork, framing; powerful (if dated) synthed score; a profound sense of atmosphere on location and in-studio. The final scene, with a grave, spectral Gates and Farrow in a gilded wingback chair, is an illustrative capstone. Unfortunately, Julia is a formulaic vengeful ghost mystery with so-so performances. The evil at the film's core (Olivia and her sexualized violence) is never examined.

  5. Clarissa's rating of the film The Haunting of Julia

    The soundtrack totally creeped me out!

  6. Francisco Pedro's rating of the film The Haunting of Julia

    Despite being very similar on a narrative level to Don't Look Now, Full Circle still manages to be a well-made horror film with a haunting soundtrack by Colin Towns. Curiously, not a single supernatural event in the film tops its opening sequence. One of the most disturbing and haunting scenes to ever open a motion picture. Loncraine does the genre justice.
