Aggregated Emelie Review 2016

Emelie Review. A couple’s replacement babysitter turns out to be more than they bargined for when she subjects their kids to a series of twisted activities. Emelie is described as a horror/thriller and released on 4th March 2016.

Emelie has got a rating of 5.5 on IMDB, which means it is average. For a horror movie though 5.5 can sometimes mean a good rating.

The movie started out promising enough but once the (dodgy) motive was revealed half-way through, the logical loopholes in the plot and weaknesses overall of the script started to show and it just became rather… meh.

I think it was bad writing because this had to be the easiest babysitter to get away from.

By reading the premise for this film I’m sure you know that this isn’t going to be some edge of your seat sophisticated thriller, it is a straightforward (mostly predictable horror/thriller that entertains enough but fails to accomplish much).

I’ll come straight to the point — “Emilie” is an exceptional horror- thriller that belongs on your list of films to see, provided you can stomach some disturbing content.

 

Emilie 2016 has a pretty favorable rating in Rotten Tomatoes. It stands at 89% wit average rating of 6.4/10. Emelie Review from Rotten Tomatoes

 

A familiarly premised but stringently executed home-invasion chiller that rarely goes for the straight-up scare when a more insidious one will do.

Parents in the market for some deserved date-night distraction couldn’t do much worse than “Emelie” – and that’s meant as a compliment.

In some cases, a slow build is a necessary and effective way to up the scare factor. In this case, the slow build is painstakingly sluggish, a seemingly never-ending climb toward a climax that’s not satisfying enough to be worth the wait.

Herbeck’s script pokes at the anxieties of parents who leave their kids alone with virtual strangers, while Bolger excels at playing the nightmare version of a babysitter: seemingly sweet, cool, and capable, but secretly evil.
