Cast & Credits
Way to strip a plot of any suspense by revealing everything from the start.Welcome to the world of one of the worst storytelling examples in the history of horror. Why did they decide to show so much of the background and context of the supernatural events, when the unknown is the vital and most important part of any horror movie?
My brain hurts so much. I feel like the only people who put any effort into this project were the actors, and I honestly feel bad for them.
The level of ridiculousness? Unimaginable. The pacing? PAINFUL. The remake of the game takes about 4 hours of gameplay to complete. They tried to fit that into a 1 hour and 30 minutes movie, and they failed. Since there was so much to show and tell, there was no breathing moment, no time to build the atmosphere and the suspense - I was bombarded with information, action and poor CGI.
There were so many laughable moments. They literally introduced, explained with dialogue and flashbacks, and concluded a whole new past plotline 7 minutes before the movie ended. I think this tells you a lot about the writing and pacing of The Labyrinth.
Do yourself a favor and just watch a whole playthrough on youtube or play the game yourself - the story makes more sense, there is a better suspense and even the graphics for the phone remake are better than any CGI this movie gave us.
Should've been a series instead.Honestly, this wasn't that bad but it definitely left me wanting more. I believe that if this was made into an actual series instead of a movie, it'd make more sense. It was an interesting story but the whole thing felt rushed. Tbh, I was never really a fan of movies where everything happened in one day. But it shouldn't be completely written off bc, like I said, the story could've had so much more depth if it was played out over multiple episodes of a show. I don't really recommend this movie because a lot of things are just never explained. But if you're bored, get it a shot.
Also, there wasn't really any music that stood out so that's why the score is 1.
