Horror Movie or Classic-Styled Haunt?
So out of boredom, I sought out a movie on Netflix one Saturday evening. I wanted to see something foreign and frightening. Before watching Veronica, I looked it up to see what it was about. The summary was vague to me. I was impressed by the raves, claiming people were so terrified they coudln’t even finish watching it! I had to get in on that
Veronica is different but it is not original. The haunts and jump scares are near predictable and the illusions given can be slightly spooky. I was not- I repeat, NOT terrifying or frightening enough to make me quit or walk away from it. I’m sorry but it wasn’t.
The story is about a girl who’s dealing with some family issues. Her father’s dead and she’s struggling with life in general. When she decides to reach out to her father and her friend’s deceased boyfriend, they make contact. Just not to the spirits they were seeking. Things begin to change; she begins to change.
Now I’m going to stop here. For me, this movie was cool. It wasn’t creepy, scary or horrific. If you have weak constitutions, then I can understand why people were terrified. But for the horror-mongers, such as myself, this movie was practically a snooze.
Yes, there were some really cool shadows at the end and I figured out what would happen, because it only seemed right but it wasn’t one of those to walk out on. It wasn’t one of those that terrified so much one needed to get away. I’m sorry, it wasn’t. Seriously, there’s one part of the movie that was disturbing, but it was awesome, not runaway in tears!
If you’re looking for a haunt, Veronica satisfies. There are subtitles but that’s not a big deal, as long as you don't mind reading. You just have to want to tolerate the normalness more than any frights. It's not a bad movie but don't believe they hype about running away from your computer or television screen. It's not going to happen.
I’m off to the next movie. Cheers!
