Writer/Director Neil Jordan’s Greta is a creepy thriller about a maniacal woman, who lures young women into her life and, eventually, kills them, if they try to leave her.
Composer Javier Navarrete’s haunting music helps to build tension during the story’s slow build. And, thanks to Maika Monroe, who plays the roommate of Chloё Grace Moretz, the early interest is sustained until the craziness of Isabelle Huppert’s character begins to unmask.
Though Huppert, Moretz and Monroe are all excellent in their performances, there are times when Jordan’s and Co-Writer Ray Wright’s script seems to be tanking. However, ultimately, it builds to a fitting climax.
If you’re into creepiness and feeling like you need to take a shower after seeing a film, then Greta is for you.
I give it a 3.5 out of 5.
