However, ‘The Spider-Man trilogy’ writer with his brother, did the required justice when it came to the scripting of this supernatural thriller.
A thriller with a twist
Humanity, since its inception, has always surrounded itself by the seven cardinal sins. In the same way, Christine Brown, a bank loan officer, who aspires to receive a promotion, goes out of her comfort to decline a mortgage extension to an old lady who soon turns out to be the culprit of the whole plot. Driven by her greediness, Christine even fails to understand the underlying motives of her senior and decides to see an astrologer for sudden changes in her fate. Every twist and turn in this American horror flick is directly linked to seven cardinal sins that drive humanity crazy!
It is a perfect role for the lead
It would not be wrong to say that the female actresses always fit the bill to get possessed by the supernatural entities. However, Raimi, with his zeal and conviction, proved even the traditional approaches still have the same effects in filmmaking. Christine, with her boyfriend, Clay go through a traumatized turn of events in the movie till the end. However, what happens at the end has still taken many audiences aback. The way Raimi did justice with his writing is very evident and proves the fact that an expert will always be an expert.
There are many incidences in Raimi’s creation that still are unexplainable such as the dilemma of why did it happen to the cute cat or the button that reached Christine at the end. They might serve the purpose of providing a thrilling and overwhelming experience to the audience. However, paranormal science is still something we look forward to. Are you wondering about the cute cat? This might prove to be your favourite binge-watch this weekend. So what are you waiting for? Get your popcorn bucket, sip your cola and enjoy!
