Thomas has a secret sorrow and learns of a family legacy. Is Sleeping Beauty his unobtainable object of desire? She is alluring to him. This was an ambitious, compelling and intriguing movie. A demon or maybe a djinn may roam the house. Thomas is not extraordinarily astute. This was decently entertaining leaving aside annoying stylistic peccadilloes.
Linda is pernicious and spills back-story. Linda has a false sense of herself and clearly disregards sense. Thomas strokes out. Linda has no veracity or authenticity. Sleeping Beauty wears outfits that look like rejects from ‘Black Swan’. Thomas suspends scepticism. Linda is awful and inappropriate. Certain narrative strands are more compelling than others. Thomas’ agony is not mesmerising. Linda is sour and wicked. Thomas is not clever or earthy.
This was reasonably effective. The duo decide events are supernatural. The trailer gave away practically the whole plot. This reminded me of ‘Grimm’ and ‘Once Upon A Time’. There is a book and a rip-off of the Weeping Angels from ‘Doctor Who’. This has a low budget. Richard (Bruce Davison of ‘The Triangle’) is a paranormal cleric. Daniel is Linda’s ex and he gets involved too. This could be the pilot for a TV show.
Thomas’ happy is gone and the heroes learn too late that they are radically in the wrong. This was compelling as desperate and ugly djinns swarm. The heroes are united only in misery. It is downright silly for people to run into things not knowing the full story. This had a chilling ending. It was not transcendently brilliant but was good. The malign figure was in full view all along and there are no ladies bits as a reward for Thomas, what a ballache.
