The naysayers miss the point
Verified purchase
I read some of the negative reviews about "jump scares", "gaslighting" and references to other movies....well...duh. If there were a ton of jump scares and no substance, you'd be bored. If you think movies/stories cannot ever use the same premise, then we wouldn't have any movies/TV/books of any genre. Not everything needs to be "edgy" to be fun. The plot was simple but enjoyable. The acting was very good. Is it going to win an Oscar? No....but then again, do horror movies ever? This movie is good for a cozy weekend watch to get you in the Halloween mindset. Anyone who doesn't appreciate horror movies for what they are should stop watching...and definitely stop leaving reviews.

Gaslighting senior citizens - makes for
Verified purchase
a good movie and Barbara Hershey is great in this one!

I haven’t seen Barbara Hershey in a movie in a long time. Not only does she look fabulous, but she is excellent as the 70 years young, ballet dancer/teacher grandma who has a mild stroke; at her own b-day party! When she finds out her affliction is Parkinson’s, she decides to spare her family the burden of her disintegration and checks into a long term care facility for seniors. On first glance, Golden Sun Manor appears to be a warm, caring environment. It’s not long before the dew is off the roses…

A good supporting cast, multi layered creep factor along with a much better than usual for Blumhouse soundtrack all combine to make THE MANOR an entertaining, light horror flick. If it weren’t for the language, (way too many f-bombs), this could be enjoyed by 12+ because the violence is veiled and the sexual content is only suggested. As it is, parents be aware that grandma has a potty mouth in this one 🍿

Wicker Seniors
Verified purchase
Nothing new really. Gaslighting, Celtic lore, witches.... weak plot. If the goal of this movie was to scare, it failed. If you're looking for something original, you're better off watching "The Wicker Man" with Christopher Lee or "Rosemary's Baby" with Mia Farrow.

::SPOILER ALERT::

At first, grandma is trying to get away. She wants her freedom and independence back. She feels like a prisoner and does not like being treated like a child. You would think she develops some empathy for the other residents. But then you find out that she cannot accept death and old age. She is tempted and chooses eternal life chained to a tree with a ritual that must be performed on a regular basis. All so that she can enjoy dancing every night during the witching hour.

Grandson gets in on the action too. He doesn't like his mom, so he teams up with grandma to also gain eternal life. "Please Grandma, I don't want you to leave me!" He sobbed.... no really, he's crying at this point. He can't imagine life without grandma, so he agrees to join a gang of witches that sacrifice senior citizens in order to stay young forever. Sounds like a good plan, right?

When it ended, I muttered, "What?!" to myself. There's so much that doesn't add up. I don't want to give any spoilers so I'll just say don't have high expectations.

Dreadfully Boring
Verified purchase
I had high hopes for this one, but another long, drawn out, overly dramatic picture that goes nowhere and everywhere. I would have given it 1 star, but Barbra Hershey looks great and isn't trying to pretend she is still 20 with facelift after facelift. Supporting cast is weak, storyline is scrambled and scattered. Too bad, it would be nice to find a film w/older characters that was halfway decent, but this was not it.

The older you are, the scarier this movie will be
Verified purchase
Hard to believe Barbara Hershey is 73 years old! Her character, Judith, moves into a senior assisted care center because of declining health. She begins to see things at night that the staff say are nightmares or early signs of dementia. As she tries to convince other's that she's not crazy, her daughter and grandson begin to wonder if she is slowly losing her mind. Watching that happen is a real burden for the adult children caring for a parent with Alzheimer's. The thought of being locked away and slowly forgotten about is probably a bigger fear than dying when getting older for most.

No spoilers, but the plot is a suspenseful mystery that bounces between "she's crazy" and "maybe she's not crazy?" Not sure I like the choice she makes in the end, but given the same circumstances, it would be a tough decision for me. Warning: probably not a good movie for Grandma and Grandpa to watch before bed!

Barbara Hershey In An Amazing Performance
Verified purchase
Barbara Hershey's acting in this really made the movie. It was overall a very good, eerie, atmospheric film but Barbara's performance was so convincing that I kept forgetting she was acting and the character she was playing wasn't really her in real life. That's never happened to me before when I've watched an actor in a film.

DEFINITELY worth watching, and in perfect time for October and Halloween. I won't go into any detail about what it is about because you have all seen the trailer and I don't want to give anything else away and spoil it for you .

No substance
Verified purchase
Listen: A jump scene or two that turns out to be nothing is allowable, but if the jump scenes never amount to anything in a purportedly scary movie, we start to think you've got nothing better to give us...which is exactly what happened here. The storyline was not developed enough and the ending fell flat.
