Even with the incredibly boring beginning, Seven in Heaven (2018) turned into the suspenseful supernatural film or as I’m calling Horror-lite. This film definitely wasn’t full-strength horror, like it’s a YA horror novel; maybe, it was adapted from a book, I don’t know and don’t care enough to find out.
The strange thing, I kept thinking I’ve seen this movie, but I just heard about it a few days ago, so that means the originality level wasn’t hitting the spot for me. I enjoyed the encounters in the alternate realities. The “gameshow” scene was enjoyable, but that was still Horror-lite.
The biggest thing that I kept wondering about was, why Guidance Counselor Wallace was the only person who knew Jude and June didn’t belong in the alternate realities? It dealt with many teenage insecurities all in one compact movie, which is another thing that’s been annoying me lately with horror movies is the meanings and the comparisons. Why can’t we just have horror that’s scary and bloody and disgusting? Why does everything have to meaning?
So now that I’ve ranted a bit, I’ll continue about Seven In Heaven. The last thing I want to mention is the poster. It’s very cool and dreamy and freaky, but it doesn’t reflect the movie at all. Had I not have seen the movie, I wouldn’t imagine the movie was about alternate realities.
I give Seven In Heaven gets 2.5 out of 5 Stars.
