Greta (2018)
Review by Bradley Frohloff

6 / 10
The character of Greta is clearly a mentally disturbed individual and the best moments of the film are when she is stalking before she goes into full blown nutjob mode. She stares from across the street all day watching her prey while they're at work, shows up unexpectedly and then eventually she gains the magic shifting power that Jason Voorhees seems to have. One second you see her, the next second she's gone.

I felt there were a few premature or overreactions of fear in the film, accompanied with loud eerie music to tell us that we should be creeped out. For example, the first moment I recall this happening was when Chloe Grace Moretz's character stumbles upon a cupboard which contains many bags (cue the loud scary music) and immediately her mood shifts from happy to freaked out. Honestly, would you immediately be scared upon the sight of seeing five pairs of the same shoes or anything else of that nature? Sure, you may think it's a bit odd but I'm sure you wouldn't be freaked out just from the sight of that.

There's a couple quick snaps of violence as the film gets closer to its conclusion, but nothing that I found to be all that memorable or special. The story is intriguing but loses some steam as it progresses to what I would consider to be a fairly generic and borderline silly finale.

Greta is an okay movie with commendable performances from its lead actresses.
