    The Graham family starts to unravel following the death of their reclusive grandmother. Even after she's gone, the matriarch still casts a dark shadow over the family, especially her loner teenage granddaughter, Charlie, whom she always had an unusual fascination with. As an overwhelming terror takes over their household, their peaceful existence is ripped apart, forcing their mother to explore a darker realm in order to escape the unfortunate fate they've inherited.


    Starring Gabriel Byrne, Toni Collette, Ann Dowd

    This is picking up some excellent reviews around the web with many claiming it to be the best horror film in years, Yep we’ve heard all this before so lets hope it actually delivers.

    Yep, it does appear to be garnering some great early buzz. Very much looking forward to it now. First trailer is up. Intriguing.

    Nothing blatant that I saw, and I watched it twice. Can you elaborate (in spoilers if you know), what they are?

    I hope we're not reaching the point where trailers need to be in spoiler tags as well! I would of thought trailers are watched at a viewer's discretion anyway, given the nature of them these days.

    My advice is never watch a trailer in 2018. Too risky. I'm always up for a contemporary horror and the cast look really good (ain't seen Gabs Bryne in anything for aggggeeeess) so i'll be keeping an eye out.

    Was not having a go, I agree with you it's up to the indivuals to press play on any trailers

    I don't know what the spoilers are only read a comment online of the warning, I'm not going to look for further details to uncover any possible spoilers.

    Oh yeah no worries mate, I know you were just pointing it out.

    I had a quick look, and funnily enough there were a few comments from those who have seen it already, about how good a trailer it is.

    So I don't know whose on the money [emoji23] but maybe everyone should just be on warning. I definitely can't see anything that would 'appear' to ruin it though. Just a visual extension of the premise. We've no idea what's going on.

    I hope the hype for this pays off and delivers with a more unsettling scenario than A Quiet Place had to offer.

    This is looking right up my street. Possibly another trip to the cinema - going to be an expensive few months for me!

    Spotted a review earlier. But didn't read on, as it started with...

    It's like the first time you watch The Sixth Sense but only much, much darker.

    That sounds right up my street! And no chance I'll be having it spoiled if it's anything like The Sixth Sense!

    Saw a trailer in front of Tully. Definitely up for this (if I'm brave enough).

    Horror films are usually over hyped of late

    I agree, when I see a 5 star review I tend to start wondering how many horror films these people actually watch. Especially when they don't seem to notice most of what's in the film has already been done before and usually more than a few times.
    Still, this one does look very promising, but I'll keep my expectations low, the same as I do with any horror film I watch. Decent horror films really are few and far between, and the ones I enjoy the most are rarely the films the media are giving the attention to as the next big thing

    I find I am pleasantly surprised at any horror film that isn't terrible.

    Gotta be careful what you read, but this is generating some serious horror buzz.

    I don't normally get caught up too much with hype; especially in the horror genre; but it seems this might, just might, be the scariest film since The Exorcist.

    I'm keeping my fingers crossed!!

    I was doubtful of this film, despite how good the cinematography looks for a horror film, but considering the reviews and the fact it's A24, I'll probably give this a watch in the cinema.
