    My heart tells me I should be rating this even higher. Beautiful, bizarre, completely unique, and filled front to back with ultra-memorable scenes. I might write a deeper review soon. Very glad I gave this another watch.

    ★★★★

    despite some occasional rough editing throughout the film, the third act is so strong that even grading this on a curve against the rest of Wes Anderson’s oeuvre, four stars feels dangerously low. extremely fun and touching, elevated by Anderson’s penchant for leaning heavily on his art departments, the only big takeaway is how much tighter his dialogue pacing and camera movements will get over time.

    Very admirably, this movie manages to accurately reflect real "haunted houses" both in terms of budget as well as ability to scare.

    The worst writing, the worst editing, the *worst* cinematography, the worst dialogue, and an unbelievably disappointing complete lack of any gore or special effects whatsoever. Mind-numbingly boring, and constantly ruining its own poor momentum with head-scratching cuts to scenes that add nothing to the movie.
