Could have been a pretty cool film but the acting left a lot to be desired. The acting and crappy "american" accents were too distracting. Why have an English main character and an American main actor then have other English cast and make them do American accents when they clearly can't . It didn't even make sense where this was supposed to be filmed. American people, American car but an English house. The plot could have made a great film. All in all very disappointing.
Really poor acting, the wife is sooo bad, the husband is a wetfish, the mother reminds me of a mother from one of those old films where she controls her kids with religion and shouting at nothing, just crazy, and the other 2 main characters, well one played out to be what she is advertised as but at some old silly fair/circus in a little caravan who managed to pull something off that a so called expert failed to do years ago with her and help from other experts. Yet she manages to get something to work with just herself and the wetfish, and the only one who played an ok part was the sister, and thats because she doesn't really say or do anything, her makeup is quite good too, but as soon as it gets near the end and she has to do a little acting, its just as bad as the rest. You don't have to worry about spoilers, you know exactly what is going to happen and it does so there you don't need to watch it now lol. I wouldn't bother.
From minute one you know exactly what is gonna happen.
Why, when you have a British directer and totally UK cast do you make everyone speak in very bad American accents? - the house and brief glimpses of scenery are also British - did the budget come from Americans? Did they hope for big sales in the US? The whole thing turned out to be annoying with all the shouting in fake accents and I couldn't wait for it to end - if it had been set in Britain with the actors using their normal accents then it could have been a solid 7/10 but this gets a 4 from me - we make pretty good horror over here if we are allowed to be ourselves and this is the 2nd Brit film I've seen today with awful forced American accents - the other being the very average Patient Zero so I'm probably a bit tired of it all - Rule Britannia!
The world of supernatural is always an interesting concept to be brought in form of movies. Movies like exorcism, the ring, ju-on, and paranormal activity is a proof of how successful a horror film about ghost can be. In other hands, there are films like Aura (2018) which have shown me that horror can be boring. I cannot concentrate throughout the screening of the film and halfway there I wanted to watch something else because it is not so engaging. The film tells the stories of a family and a photography apparatus in their house. The stories starts when they capture photos of people in the house, there is a specific aura that will be included in the result. Somehow, the aura actually points out that there is a greater evil. The main stories actually simple, if you want spoilers then go ahead. The brother, his wife, his mother, tried to exorcise a presence from the house that is actually disturbing the sister. They do that by enlisting the help of a séance. *By the end of the film, the séance died but managed to free the sister only to have the presence moved to the wife.* The story actually have a good concept to utilize photography in capturing paranormal presence, but I see games like "fatal frame" can did it a lot better and have more mysteries to be invested. Moreover, what I think is lacking from this film is the characters and act. I really cannot sympathize with the family at all and how they act throughout the film. One of the most disappointing character is the paranormal expert and the demon. First of all, I wanted to say, that a good paranormal expert can carry the movies through their success. Insidous movies even got so invested on their own that they decided to make a special film about the paranormal expert. But in this film, I almost wanted to scream that you will be scammed by that paranormal expert. She was very unconvincing somehow and not so interesting. *I even felt nothing by the time she died at the end of the film*. The demon that appear as antagonist doesn't feel very threatening and dangerous as well. It failed to bring sense of danger and suspense to the film. In the end, I do not think it is a good movie. I will not recommend other people to watch it. However, if you wanted to try it, please do so. Personally, I will watch other film if I wanted to get scared and thrill. I just hope that Aura will not be a sign of what horror movie in 2018 will look like. I already have high expectation since I watched Hereditary.
