So I have finally signed up to Netflix, and the first film I have watched was this 2021 supernatural thriller called Things Heard and Seen.
The movie stars Amanda Seyfried, James Norton, F. Murray Abraham, Natalia Dyer, and Karen Allen. It was written by Shari Springer Berman and Robert Pulcini, adapted from the novel All Things Cease To Appear by Elizabeth Brundage. The movie was directed by Shari Springer Berman and Robert Pulcini.
The film follows a couple moving into an old home with a dark past. The couple seem to be the perfect pair but deep down they are not, Catherine has given everything up for her husband, George, but as the film progresses he turns out to be a man who cheats on his wife, and has many secrets and lies, which are uncovered along the way, secrets and lies he is even willing to kill to keep hidden from his wife. The old house is actually haunted by the woman who used to live their, who died of unpleasant circumstances, she wants to protect Catherine and her child from George. However she isn’t the only spirit in the house, a much darker and eviler one, wants history to repeat itself.
It’s a very gripping movie, and one looking at the film at first glance, might think that Amanda Seyfried is just starring in a similar movie to last year’s, You Should Have Left, but it’s a very different film all together. It may feature spirits in a house but this is a thriller and not a jump scare feature. You find yourself hating George more and more as the movie progresses and you continuously hope Catherine will get away from him.
For my first Netflix movie, I was actually glad it was a solid feature. 4 1/2 out of 5.
