Back reviewing movies this week, I Am the Pretty Thing That Lives in the House is a recent Netflix release and here’s what it’s about:
“A young nurse takes care of elderly author who lives in a haunted house.”
I’m in the minority again. I really liked this movie and was glued to the screen. For one thing, I love Ruth Wilson, who plays the nurse. She was exceptional in per performance and the other characters were equally interesting. The atmosphere of the movie is a modern Gothic and it’s beautifully creepy. The house feels alive with its history of life and death. And the slow pacing and narration are hypnotic. In general the whole movie feels poetic.
This movie is different for a ghost story. I like that best about it. It has a low rating, and I can see where it would lose some viewers. Allow your imagination to flow with the movie and you’ll love it. So I say, give this one a try.
My Rating: 4 out of 5

I prefer movies rated below a 4 on IMDB.
