Release date: 2012
When I write a review I always put the rider “Contains Spoilers” with it and, invariably, there are (bar the occasional film that has no plot to spoil). This one, however, is a pretty massive spoiler just by being reviewed as the vampire aspect is only revealed at the very end of the film. Sorry… but just like the Hamiltons I have to completely spoilt the twist.
The film itself is based on the Charlotte Perkins Gilman short story of the same name (very, very, very vaguely) but could be said – even before the vampiric twist – to be little more than a reimagining in real terms. In many respects the main female role in this is meant to be a fictionalised version of Gilman and the story she writes in film (that we hear commentated upon but do not hear that content of) is the Yellow Wallpaper.
