It starts off slow and it takes time to build up a tension but then it goes all over the place, and it seems like it's a half hour too short. There's no resolve to a certain devastating situations, which ruins the feel of seriousness that was build from the beginning. Still, it offers quite a few gorey scenes and beautiful interior designs. And because of its relatively short running time, it's easy to seat through.
La miliardesima variazione sul tema della casa infestata, ambientata - per qualche ragione non ben precisata ai fini della sceneggiatura - sul finire degli anni '70 in un paesino sperduto del New England. Bello il make-up degli infestanti e divertenti gli ultimi venti minuti, ma sono dettagli che non bastano a scacciare la puzza di già visto.
Inspired by Fulci, starring Barbara Crampton...I was ready to be blown away by this one but it really let me down. It's got the glacial, understated Ti West aesthetic going on which is at odds with its absurd, Lovecraft for dummies plot. The ambiguity of the final moments is especially frustrating considering the fact that the central conceit is explained ad nauseum but the end feels pretentiously mystifying.
More of a tongue-and-cheek take on the haunted house genre with ample gore, than a fright show. We Are Still Here is just as cliched as it is inventive, with much of the cleverness coming from its townspeople angle. The reasoning for them and the ghost's agenda is sadly guesswork rather than being well conveyed. Although the emotion is one-note, the actors are good in their stereotypes, and the climax is exciting.
