This is a family horror film we’ve been waiting for. Probably would be a great double feature with “The Monster Squad”.
Jack Black is simply charming in a role he was meant to play. Cate Blanchett did a fine job as hil old neighbor. Owen Vaccaro was a knockout as Lewis. Then there’s the scene stealer in Sunny Suljic as Tarby who played his part like a young Corey Feldman. Erick Kripke of Supernatural fame did some of his best work adapting the book in this screenplay.
This is easily Eli Roth’s funnest movie he has done. He should think about doing more of this has he seemed to find his niche. The special effects and production designs were ace. Overall this is a 5/5 from my eyes it was super fun. It’s nice to see the work put into this movie pay off I’d love to see a blooper reel of this. Seems like everyone had so much fun. If you wanna take your kids to a movie this should be a nice introduction to the genre.
