A girl, hiding in a church, writes a letter to the police who, without evidence, raise a stink.
I couldn't get half way through this. Not only do the various genres in this movie not interest me, but it highlights "listen and believe". I fucking guarantee that's why Emma Watson is in this.
The title is based on Regression (psychology)
- I strongly enjoy the movies I've seen him in, and he is the reason I'm looking at this one.
- I most strongly recognize David Thewlis from his first appearance in one of those Harry Potter films, though it's likely I had some latent memory from either Dragonheart (1996) or Seven Years in Tibet (1997).
- Though I loved her
big fat mouthin that first Harry Potter film I had seen, the fact that she's been manipulated into a useful idiot makes me despise her enough that I was upset to learn she was in this movie.
- Though I loved her
Starting in 1980, accounts began to surface
of satanic rituals being practiced in the U.S.
Panic and suspicion spread across many communities
This film is inspired by real events
- "Inspired by" still means "fictional".
- 2:30 -- I looked, and I could not see at a glance what this was "inspired by" or based on. Also, apparently, this is a psychological thriller horror film. Sigh, I would have passed on this had I known.
- Oh, this is a religious propaganda movie.
3:45 -- She was forced to sign that under duress, to separate her from her father so Bad Things could happen to her.
- Being young, and being a girl, she'll be the primary motivator for the main character.
- He cares because he's a cop, not because he's a big strong man and must protect the little weak girl.
- 4:15 -- 1990-10-14
- 5:00 -- "The devil made me do it." ?
8:00 -- Why does the other guy know what door her room is?
- 10:00 -- Because he's a friend of the family?
- Wait, fuck, that's Aaron Ashmore, his identical twin.
- 12:15 -- Oh, now I recognize that cop, Peter MacNeill, from.. oh I don't know, this and that.
- 13:30 -- ".. provoke a regression."
15:45 -- "She'd never lie to me" .. but would she lie to other people?
- Is it the brother who's visiting her?
- 17:00 -- That's the wrong perspective.
- 26:00 -- Uh, being agnostic doesn't mean that. Sigh.
28:00 -- Oh news.. "One of his accomplices could even belong..."
- This is the problem with sexual assault cases. Innocent until proven guilty! Fucking take the law seriously, people. Right now, the audience is assuming dainty little girl wouldn't lie to anyone, "listen and believe" and all that. Always leaning on the side of the presumed-victim, and it's still presumed at this point, is dangerous.
- 29:00 -- So it could be some book authors fucking around with peoples' brains to spin tales and sell books?
- 30:30 -- Wait, what? No, cops have rights too. Actually, they have extralegal rights, but let's not get into that.
- 30:45 -- I recognize that actor (Tom).
- 32:30 -- Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, United States
- So far, I've seen a whole lot of drama and resource expenditure around some stories which have no evidence.
- Oh god, is this 1/3 through? I'll give this five minutes.
37:30 -- This is why I don't like this sort of movie..
.. ending this.
- The girl should not be assumed to be telling the truth or the whole truth.
- The girl told a tale by letter, and should have been interviewed to repeat it and confirm she's telling it without being under duress.
The one cop is captured without being put under arrest.
I stopped bothering to pay attention..
