My Thoughts

I'll try not to give to much away for those that haven't watched it (and I highly recommend you do) but there will still kind of be spoilers. This is one of my favourite horror movies. I usually like paranormal horror like The Conjuring (2013) or Poltergeist (1982). I thought this would be a Gothic ghost movie. It was not. But it also was. Alright, let me explain. I thought this would be a straight up ghost movie but it turned out it was more. In the movie, Edith is talking about her book and says "The ghost is just a metaphor...For the past" I didn't realize then but it was foreshadowing the fact that the movie isn't really about the ghosts. They represent the past. They are literal 'ghosts of the past'. It's not a traditional scary ghost story. It has layers. It's not just scary. It's scary, and sad, and tragic. It unexpectedly makes you feel empathy for the antagonists. Sure what they've done is horrific and inexcusable but you still feel bad. They weren't truly evil, they were just twisted by their abuse and clung to each other. They weren't born like this, they were made into monster and they regretted it in the end (him much more so than her). They became monsters because of their past and that was their ultimate peril

But the horror... The horror was for love. The things we do for love like this are ugly, mad, full of sweat and regret. This love burns you and maims you and twists you inside out. It is a monstrous love and it makes monsters of us all.
