The Luring – Drama, Thriller
Category – Movie
Content – The story begins with a couple and their young child, meeting a gentleman about buying a house. As the man proceeds to tell the couple that another boy actually died in the house many years prior, tragedy strikes. Then we go to Garrett, the boy involved in the prior story. But Garrett doesn’t remember that time in his childhood life, so he decides to bring his girlfriend to the family home to attempt to remember his past. And a mysterious masked woman might hold all the keys. And this gentleman seems to be lurking around. While Garrett tries to remember his past, his anger grows intensely with every day. He begins to long for the mystery woman, and is growing increasingly annoyed with his current girlfriend. The storyline is quite disjointed actually. There really isn’t any “thrills” to the movie until the last twenty minutes. The end has a bit of a fun twist to it; however with every child that the house “infects,” there is a red balloon involved. This is too cheesy, as it appears to be simply a rip off of the movie “It.” Originality always works better with independent films. This scores a 5 out of 10.
Acting – I haven’t heard of any of these actors, but they were good. Rick Irwin plays Garrett, he does a fine job with what he was given. The girls are played by Molly Fahey and Michaela Sprague, both were good. I think Michaela shined a bit more, but for the most part the movie is just simple. A little too simple for actors to portray excellent acting chops. Score is 5 out of 10.
Duration – 1 hr 35 min. Well, if this movie had more excitement and less drama it would have worked well. But this one lacks the thrills and therefore, lacks the good time. It is actually quite slow at times. This gets a 4 out of 10.
TOTAL INDEX for The Luring – 14 out of 30
Recommended Watch – While this movie is lacking in the thrills that is supposed to happen, it might be one to pass. But you never know, just go into the movie knowing that it is pretty slow with a fast ending.
