    My first foray into Billy Wilder’s catalogue of films, and what a great one to start off with.

    A little twist into the period drama, and one that I wasn't expecting. Emma Stone, Olivia Colman & Rachel Weisz were brilliant, maybe they might get a few nods come awards season.
    All I can say is it was wacky, witty, absured and almost perfect.

    I don't know weather to class this as a horror or not ? But whatever it is, it's a damn good film. And for once a horror done right in my opinion.

    And the music fits into the film perfectly. Knowing when to crank it up, and when to slow it down a notch. It just leads into the overall tension of the film, and makes it that little bit scarier. And the ending will keep you guessing as well.…

    J.K Simmons, take a bow my friend. If you don't win an Oscar for this performance. Then the academy should take, a long hard look at themselves.

    Absolutely thrilling film, you could cut the tension in some scenes with a knife. It was that good. Abit of a slow burner for me when it started, but about 40 mins in that's when it got really good.

    If you don't see this film, your doing yourself a disservice. Go and watch this film now. That's why I have gave this film a 4.5*. ENJOY !!
