To me, this played like a kind of inverse Twilight.
Maybe that shy, new kid in your class with the weird family isn't actually friendly? For about half of the film, Charles is framed as the protagonist. I sympathized with him for being an outsider--despite the very obvious displays of monstrosity. But after he assaults Tanya, he is impossible to sympathize with; at that point, he is only the monster. Tanya takes over as the actual protagonist of the movie. But I felt bad for having rooted for Charles in the beginning, for allowing him to trick me as he did her--especially since I knew what was coming.
