Director: Andrés Muschietti. Cast: Jessica Chastain, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Megan Charpentier. 100 min. Rated PG-13. Spain/Canada. Horror.
A stupid, fun and funny old-fashioned horror film, with ghosts and haunted houses and shock shots at a rate of one every five minutes; you'll jump at plenty moments that have no place in a story that makes no sense at all. One of those movies that Guillermo Del Toro probably produces in his leisure time just to have some fun. Signs of not only a sequel but also a prequel are in abundance. Merely good for a fun weekend night scare with family and friends - although it is enjoyable to see what a flexible actress Jessica Chastain is.
