[Review] The Gatehouse (2017): Part Fairy Tale, Part Horror Movie, Exceptional Performance From Scarlett Rayner – by Dave Dreher

Part fairy tale, part horror movie, The Gatehouse (2017) from director   Martin Gooch delivers the goods. Scarlett Rayner, Simeon Willis, Linal Haft, Paul Freeman, Hannah Waddingham, Alix Wilton Regan, and Melissa Knatchbull star. Lead Rayner is exceptional, sucking you into her plights of dealing with the loss of her mom and facing the horrors of the forest nearby, including a fantastic practical  effect creature. The gore is fun but the CGI is a little rough. Gooch provides a solid script as well. Well worth your time when you come across The Gatehouse.

The Gatehouse (2017) 2.5 out of 5 stars (2.5 / 5)
