Nocturne may will be my favorite Blumhouse ‘horror’ movie in recent years I say horror like that because I’m sure some won’t consider this horror and yell at us saying it’s a thriller. If you dislike movies like Suspiria I’d recommend you to stir clear of Nocturne as it’s similar tone and it has a nice mix of the underrated Elijah Wood and John Cusack movie Grand Piano.
The atmosphere may be the deciding factor for you when it comes down to how you feel about Nocturne. It may be slow for some and rewarding for others who stick around but I can already sense a lot of people saying how they couldn’t get past the first 15 minutes.
The acting by Sydnee Sweeney and Madison Iseman are the strongest out of the cost here in Nocturne they really help elevate the somewhat mundane casting that otherwise wouldn’t be great without them. The direction of Zu Quirke is admirable though not great it is a pleasure to watch. While often enjoyable for a straight to streaming movie, Nocturne is not without its flaws.
Overall grade: 3/5 stars
