Sinopsis

In post-WWII Britain, a doctor revisits a crumbling great house called Hundreds Halls where his mother once worked as a nurse maid. The owners are losing the house because they can’t afford the taxes, even though they say the home is haunted by the malevolent ghost of their mother’s first born.

Abrahamson would rather race through the spine-chilling moments — or throw a haughty sneer in their direction — so that he can get to the metaphor at the story’s heart. . . . If that makes it sound like meaning constantly takes precedence over method here, it’d be a spot-on diagnosis. And like flesh without a skeleton to support it, the film ultimately collapses in a hollowed-out heap.

The twisting and cracking of the British class system is always fascinating to observe, and “The Little Stranger” traces the details of its chosen moment of social change with precision and subtlety, and with its own layers of somewhat dubious nostalgia. Since it’s also a horror movie, subtlety can go only go so far, and the past becomes a trunk mined for spooky costumes and effects.
