    This movie received high ratings. I watched it and its quite a pretentious film about suicide. Its masked in good v evil, Christianity, etc but its all just a make up job. The point about the devil, being more powerful than Thanos' Snap, but not strong enough to kill old, comatose dad was also my overwhelming thought in the end... thats it. Way over rated and filled with plot holes but great if want to watch people kill themselves.

    Tbh steangers was awful. Scream 1-2 did everything a lot better years before. And it was the one that set the rules for new age slashers. The strangers Is just ticking boxes, being formulaic and boring.

  • SupahFly

    Just saw the movie and the ending kinda ruins it tbh. The movie did so much right but ending on a cheap ass jumpscare fucks it all up. It would've worked better without the scare. Just her being broken and cornered while you hear the singing. We all know what happens next as the movie makes it pretty fucking clear that there is no escape. But nooooo. The guy from the shitshow called "the strangers" saw sinister a few too many times and really wanted to repeat that same movie ruining ending. What in the actual fuck.

    Probably the most unsettling demon/ghost movie I've ever seen. Effectively conveyed a feeling of vulnerability and helplessness. If you come into contact with it you are fucked. Even if you drive all night to get away your soul is stained and it cannot be undone. It also had scares that were subtle in their own ways. It was good at catching the audience off guard almost similar to something like the art of a good comedy bit. Also if you look closely you can get meaningful little messages that the movie throws you every once in a while. If anyone is reading this and has a more unsettling movie recommendation thatd be cool too.

    Just checking, you don't think the gran invited the evil in? In the very first scene , as she walks past the goats she tells them to relax it's something good coming? And in the next scene when the chair turns it's like she was expecting it a bit,

    The moral of the story: Go to church and _communicate_ with your family!!!

  • Gnsd45

    You mean to tell me that you are properly going to explain a movie with no plot, no consistency, no nothing, just random scenes copy pasted from various different horror movies? I mean, anyone could create a random story to explain some 0 efford plotless garbadge like that.

    @foundflix why take the nurse’s words so literally?

  • algol29

    It had potential, but in the end, the movie made no sense because the creators had no idea what they were doing with the ending. The acting was surprisingly well done (not so much the brother). The sister/daughter is great. She'd probably be a real actress if Hollywood wasn't complete trash today. I saw The Conjuring 3 two days ago, and that couldn't be further from scary. I hope the series is done.

  • PD Zombie

    Hey, you didn't explain the ending!!! I want my money back!! Oh, that's right... Well, the way I see it, the "devil" is the guilt and impotence of the family while the father is dying. The mother goes insane with grief, the siblings are consumed by the depressing nature of death's finality (You can't talk to people after they die, that's why the brother is haunted by the mother; and the sister doesn't feel capable of taking care of the father, that's why her alucinations revolve around him). The "devil" keeps telling them to get out of the house, but not even love prevails when everyone has to die in the end...

    Would have been a great end credit scene if the brother was shown in a hospital bed having survived his attempted suicide but was in a coma like the father. His wife watching over him from a chair and in the background they show the priest, out of frame, steering into the room from just outside the door.

  • Hailey

    So in the end the daughter is the only one seen really being attacked by the entity, because as her father died so did the only soul left in the world who loved her. As soon as he died, she was truly alone and unloved, and that is what the entity needed the whole time.

    I kinda hate movies like this especially with how they view Christianity. The Devil is just this all powerful nearly unstoppable force that can torment people for the entirety of their lives and then they're punished by God essentially for not being strong enough to endure it till they die a natural death. Like if God made this being this does he expect humans to survive encounters with it? It's one thing if they purposefully summon it into their lives but to my knowledge this family didn't do that so 🤷‍♀️

    • Mizako 96
      Mizako 96

      He wasn’t portrayed as unstoppable though. It’s hinted many times that they had the power to stop him through their bond and love for each other. But they could never set aside their differences to love one another.

    Is it just me or does it seem like the dad only coughs when people are trying to leave the house? Like it’s the devil baiting the victims back into the house?

  • Diana

    The reason the dad lasted so long was because he was so loved by his children especially his daughter.

  • Naren Pradhan

    I'm not Christian, but I can see quite a few religious metaphors in here. The siblings and their mother start out as nonbelievers, not believing they need any spiritual assistance. But as the priest says, just because you don't believe in something doesn't mean it won't come for you, something they realize too late. The mother starts buying crosses frantically in hopes of salvation, but it isn't enough to save her. Before this she tries to tell her children not to come, but they don't listen, maybe a metaphor for people not listening to Jesus's warnings. After the diabolical presence becomes clear, the focus shifts from believing in it to remaining faithful. The nurse tells them that one of the worst things they could do to their father is allow him to die alone. Yet this is exactly what they do- Michael abandons them straight out, and Louise stumbles out of the house just long enough for their father to expire without her by his side. This could represent people trying to save their own skin in the face of evil instead of remaining true to God. Both of them are killed for this, in Louise's case after hearing Michael's agonized voice, presumably from his punishment in hell, and her mother singing a song about Jesus's love, something she failed to value in her ordeal and ultimately pays the price for. Other metaphors might include (I'm pulling stuff out of my ass here: -The priest is standing outside and they rip out the phone from the wall, thinking that it's the work of the devil, when in reality it's Charlie. This represents how when faced with evil, people will often turn away help from God in fear, thinking that He is one of them. -The siblings want to bring their father "somewhere safe," but the doctor refuses to unplug him. This could represent how people think that they need to "protect" or "save" God, when in reality all they need to do is stay with him. -The real priest is far away and had a daughter named Louise who killed herself. This might represent how God's son died, and he doesn't want others to suffer the same fate. -The nurse says that although all the siblings see in death is sorrow, she sees a lot of love. This love could have saved them, as well as their mother, but they couldn't see it. - The one goat that survives the massacre has one leg. Jesus said "If your foot leads you astray, cut it off, lest it lead you into hell." Naturally, the other goats are thrown into a fire like dry twigs, also a bible reference. -The lamb is probably also Jesus, or maybe just the last glimmer of hope in their situations, and Michael says that he will work hard to protect it. He forgets that, of course, and dies for it.

  • KayKay2513

    Here just at 13:00 after neighbour killed himself, it made me think....I wonder if the afterlife would be civil enough to allow court. CLEARLY, that man was coerced into killing himself. If the demons methods are that out there, surely he wouldn't be allowed to keep the souls because more than likely these people would have never killed themselves if it weren't for the demon harrassment. But we all know how barbaric the Bible is. I think I'd rather stick with the devil who wanted humans to have knowledge rather than be ignorant for humanity.

    This is the type of movie that annoys me the most actually, because the only thing they needed was to communicate, to talk to each other. They could have known something was going on and help the mother, help the father. They could have stayed together and help each other, protect each other. But nope, from the very beginning it was each for their own and that's how they died.

    • Mizako 96
      Mizako 96

      I don’t really know what you didn’t understand specifically but, the “priest” that they met with and that entered their house was never actually there. He was really in Chicago the entire time and the demon was simply playing a game with the siblings by pretending to be the priest.

  • Achillès

    For me the whole movie felt like a oddity especially since they showed the "demon" so early on. I was expecting for some closure on that part. What is that exactly? a Wendigo? an actual "Demon"? because "demons" wouldn't kill flocks of Goats just like that Skinwalker/Wendigo maybe since it changed its appearance so very often. And what was the reason they were targeted in the first place? is the whole movie literal or metaphorical ? The movei felt like it was thrown together in a blender and whatever popped out that was it.

  • Thatfathipo

    What I don't get for these type of movies is they always let the demons in the devil do anything they want to the victim willy-nilly. But God is never in any way shape or form involved? Even when the nurse was a firm believer?I'm not religious or anything but if the devil is there shouldn't there be an opposite to that?
