Feat. Isabelle Huppert, Chloe Grace Moretz, Maika Monroe
Creepy psychological thriller from Neil Jordan with a reliably fantastic performance from Huppert as a lonely widow with a sinister agenda who befriends a vulnerable young woman (ChloĆ« Grace Moretz) after a chance encounter. Emerges as a campy blend of horror and comedy which is nutty enough to deserve some…
