The Beguiled – Trailer vs. Movie #43 (-8.8)

As is typical with all my posts, please be aware there are possible spoilers.

The trailer that I watched for this movie is below:

 

The Beguiled had such potential.  Great ensemble cast, seemingly interesting suspense thriller plot, etc.  Very little of that pays off however.  The trailer takes the most interesting parts of the movie, mixes them up and makes you believe there is a crazy thriller just laying below the surface.  This however is not what the movie is.  The movie is a very predictable 1 1/2 hours of very slow burn movie that just doesn’t go anywhere.  There are moments in the movie that make you think there is somewhere to go, maybe a interesting love triangle, maybe a jealousy outrage, or everyone is just crazy.  But no, nothing happens, nothing out of the ordinary at all.

Watch in the theater? – No

Watch at home? – No

I watched the trailer, have I already seen the movie? – Yes
