Things Heard & Seen (2021)

Netflix’s new horror film, Things Heard & Seen, is less of your typical horror movie and more of a thriller meets the spiritual. Starring Amanda Seyfried, this book turned movie shows a charming idealic marriage that isn’t quite what it seems. The themes of the story is its strongest champion, constantly adding to the undercurrent of tension that you can feel right from the first moments, even before the family moves into a new home that seems to have a sinister guest lingering. While not a scary movie, it does leave you feeling heavily unsettled. Unfortunately, I felt the ending fell terribly flat, even feeling a bit unsatisfied at the conclusion. It was still a really good movie despite this, one that kept me on the edge of my seat through the entire film. If not for the ending, I would have given this movie full stars, but its shortcomings were just too many to ignore.
