My rating: 3 of 5 stars
An amusing bit of creepiness.
Not a whole lot to say about this one; it’s quick, cheap and dirty. I’ll give you a shudder, though any veteran of horror is not going to be surprised.
One original bit that I did quite enjoy was the image of Rose mangling Mary. Like watching Child’s Play, at first the image is silly, but the more you think about it, the more it lodges in your head and the more disturbing it becomes.
On the downside, the flashback-followed-by-flash-forward was a little messy, and the constant POV hops made this harder to read than it should have been. They’re not deal breakers, and it’s still fun for all that… Just felt like it could have been a little more streamlined.
