The Attic – REVIEW
Written by VHS
“The Attic” is a psychological horror movie directed by Mary Lambert. If follows the story of Emma and her family who have just moved into a new house. One thing I’ve learned from watching horror movies my whole life is that when a house’s price is to good to be true, don’t move in. To bad for Emma’s family, they didn’t watch scary movies. Emma soon starts to see a person in the house, someone who looks just like her. Her fear grows to the point where she stops eating, and won’t even leave the house. Her family tries to help her but they think she has a mental illness and ignore her sightings as a side effect of the mental breakdown.
I like a good ghost movie and don’t know how this one slipped under my radar for so long. It’s not the best flick in the genre but it’s worth a watch for sure. Especially for fans of Alexandra Daddario who will get to see the starlet before she was the celeb she is today. A lot of celebrities get their start in indie horror and it’s great to see that it hasn’t changed.
