10 Horror Movies That Totally Confused You
If Imelda Staunton’s face still sends a chill down your spine from seeing her playing the vile Dolores Umbridge in the Harry Potter franchise, then you can cash that in here to see her in a real scary movie and get bonus fear!
Staunton plays a sinister nun who leads our protagonist, Tomaz, into a very tricky situation. At first thinking that he is helping a woman take care of her sick mother, Tomaz finds that he has gotten himself involved in guardianship of a demon.
Tomaz has a sinister past, of which we get glimpses in a few flashbacks throughout the film. Their exact relation to the present is not made clear but we can take a guess, as we also take a guess as to who the demon is, why they are there, why Imelda Staunton wants someone to take care of it, and a million other things.
The main source of confusion in this film comes from not knowing how the present is meant to interact with the past, and also understanding characters’ motivations in such a bizarre situation. It’s not necessarily a bad film, but it does err on the side of being a little too unexplained for its own good.
