"Let Her Out" caught my attention with two things; the first and mostprominent thing was that it is a horror movie, of course. And thesecond thing was that the synopsis for the storyline seemed interestingand it could actually be a great movie.
I will say that I didn't really find this 2016 horror movie to be aparticular masterwork piece within the horror genre. While the storywas entertaining enough for what it was, then the movie was justsuffering from being overly predictable and actually also being way toogeneric - leaning way too much up against many other horror movies. Soit other words, it lacks originality.
There are some good enough moments throughout the course of "Let HerOut", mostly being the jump scares, but also the acting should bepraised here. Alanna LeVierge really did carry the movie quite wellwith her performance as Helen.
"Let Her Out" is hardly a movie that will scare you out of your wits,but there are some creepy and spooky enough moments here and there tomake it worthwhile to sit through the entire movie. However, "Let HerOut" just wasn't an outstanding or particularly memorable movie.
Nicely filmed and equally nicely edited, there is something oddlyappealing about the movie in a strange way. And there are some ratherinteresting and somewhat disturbing visual scenes that were quite nice,and that was a definite boost in the right direction. Just a shame thatthe overall picture was so predictable and generic.
Helen's fall into madness was interesting enough, but the movie justdidn't fully have what it took to be outstanding. But when thetransformation scene took place, it just went down the drain so fast.While it looked nice and had great special effects, it was just, andlet's be blunt here, too much!
This is hardly the type of movie that you will watch more than once,because the story doesn't have enough contents to sustain more than asingle viewing.
My rating of "Let Her Out" settles on a 5 out of 10 stars. While "LetHer Out" certainly is entertaining enough for a single viewing, thereare far better horror movies out there.
Let Her Out follows Helen, a bike courier who suffers a traumatic accident. As she recovers, she begins to experience strange episodic-black outs, hallucinations, and night terrors-that lead her to discover that she has a tumor, a benign growth that is the remnants of a "vanishing twin" absorbed in utero. Over time, the tumor manifests itself as the dark and demented version of a stranger. As Helen's emotional and psychological state begins to deteriorate further and further, she begins to act out in psychotic episodes that are influenced by her evil twin - making her a danger to herself and her best friend, Molly.
