A review from someone who should have known better

That’s the power of good storytelling — something The Turning lacks.

I did read some reviews before I went to go see the movie

I wasn’t wise enough to heed that warning; don’t be like me.

A movie with three (or was it just two?) endings

I can safely say, from my experience, that the collective theater groan is a universal thing, and it mostly takes the form of, “Huh, what?”

Strange, to say the least.

SPOILER ALERT: I’m going to try to interpret the endings here…

Her greatest fear has come true — she is just like her mother.

The Turning may be a description of the creation of the movie

My final piece of advice

Save yourself the frustration of trying to figure out that ending.

What to watch instead
