After finding him sleeping in the shed, Lionel puts up Frank in the guest bedroom. Usually I try to persevere with films, but I had to give up on this after an hour, as I could not bear it any longer. In fact unless you're looking for a lifetime movie decaffeinated keep going. It takes a while for anything paranormal to happen, and even when it does, it is neither scary nor original. This film moves much more slowly than what we're used to in the United States, particularly for a horror film. I have no idea what the point of this movie is at all.
Instead, I got a barely recognizable one. Didn't get any chemistry from the leads and Lee Bane shows neither enthusiasm or subtlety. Please don't waste you time and money on this This movie is slow. Summary: One big yawn and a waste of time and money. Was looking forward to watching but now,completely useless, Just wasted a complete 88mins of my life I can't get back now, if I could rewind time I honestly would. Now Reverend Foyster and Marianne must discover the deadly secrets of the Rectory to avoid becoming another tragic footnote in the dark history of The Most Haunted House In England.
I read the synopsis and it sounded like this could have been an entertaining horror movie. Nothing actually happens, characters just mope around rooms and moan about their lives. . The plot is methodical and thinly stretched, but interesting enough to make this venture worthwhile. Lionel then murders Marianne and hides both dismembered corpses in the closet where he discovered the skeletons. The couple's peaceful existence is soon shattered by a series of unexplained occurrences which quickly escalate into a heart stopping nightmare.
When I considered the film on its own merits I found it to be a very enjoyable tale of betrayal. That it was low-budget, which from frequent personal experience is rarely a good sign due to that there are so many poor ones out there though there are decent to good ones as well , made me though apprehensive. After Lionel strikes her, Marianne returns to Frank and agrees that Lionel should die. That notwithstanding, this is a typical Jones' product: an approximation of the time period in which it is set the 1930s , sound design that fluctuates occasionally making some of the dialogue difficult to hear and committed acting from the very small cast. The couple's peaceful existence is soon shattered by a series of unexplained occurrences which quickly escalate into a heart stopping nightmare.
Here, Bane plays well-spoken rake Frank who moves into Borley Rectory as a penniless handyman. Again the supernatural element is minimal and simply shouldn't have been added. The ending has no build-up and just ends ridiculously. There is nothing interesting or illuminating with what the film was trying to do and the drama is overwrought with no momentum and a lot of weirdness. Considering the low budget they captured a period feel very well too. No point at all of watching this.
Now Reverend Foyster and Marianne must discover the deadly secrets of the Rectory to avoid becoming another tragic footnote in the dark history of The Most Haunted House In England. The cover art, title and plot description must have been from a different movie altogether. It's not actually a horror film, a more accurate description would be a drama without any drama. Enjoy all the albums new movie with all Faves Movie Streaming In! Even without a huge budget, a decent script and atmospheric filming could have made it a worthwhile project. Want a dull drama, this is one for you.
If there was anything else I must have missed it when I dozed off. Management, images and visual effects were all very innovative and brilliant. Life is too short for films like this. The production is intimate, focusing on the relationships of the three rather on spectacular shock effects. I felt it was well written and quite clever in its execution.
Let's throw in a bit of brief nudity to make it more interesting. This movie did not get anything right. The couple's peaceful existence is soon shattered by a series of unexplained occurrences which quickly escalate into a heart stopping nightmare. She tells him the story of a nun who had an affair with a monk. This movies is about a cheating wife, not about paranormal activity. Just watched it A Haunting at the Rectory full and free online movie.
The spirits of the nun and the monk are now said to haunt the rectory. Conversations between characters were often slow and laboured - totally artificial. Well, it started off badly. I thought this movie was supposed to be about a haunted place, but it is, in fact, about infidelity. Having said that, if the technical problems with the film had been addressed and the actors given direction and the opportunity to rehearse more this could have been an interesting movie to watch.
They do enter into the story, but they aren't the main focus for the first half of the movie. This film is a shocker, and not in the way it intended. The much more interesting love story though between the two central characters, was enjoyable to see unfold. Young sexually frustrated housewife has an affair with live in handy man while bible wielding preacher husband is absent during the day. Lionel meets the woman in white again. The quality was great all around. This movie is about a love triangle among a bald reverend, his buxom wife and a not so good looking handyman.
