  2. 2. ‘The Moth Diaries’: The bore diaries - Singapore Movies - inSing.com Movies 2/15/13 5:38 PM inSing.com Thinks: At 82 minutes long, ‘The Moth Diaries’ isnt a very long movie. Unfortunately for it though, we did glance at our watch many times throughout, waiting for its inevitable ending. And while the movie does attempt to tackle a difficult subject topic in Rebeccas suicidal tendencies, the end result is just not very entertaining. Beckii C Cinema... Movie... Bagaholicb... Also see: From models to film stars gallery Featured Series As a movie, it trudges along at an almost relaxed pace, trying to set up the chills slowly and at a more traditional pace that unfortunately doesnt come through. The way that Rebecca’s friends get taken away one by one seems ludicrous and even the deaths feel like they dont really matter all; its just not very scary.

The main problem of the movie is that the story hinges a lot on the question of whether Ernessa is really a vampire or is Rebecca just imagining things as a result of her obsession and family history.

Search for feature articles Girl...on girl? And because of the nature of film, most people would tend to assume that Ernessa does exist and isnt a figment of Rebeccas imagination. Additionally, as most of the movie takes place in the school and much of what Rebecca does is just watching Lucie together with Ernessa, get jealous and then proceed to sulk, it results in many of the scenes feeling somewhat oddly paced, repetitive and predictable. Lily Cole does possess the face to play such the role of Ernessa exuding the anti-social creepiness required of the role. Shes pretty much the only scary bit of the movie which isnt saying much of the movies scariness as a whole. Although the film deals with the intense emotions of female adolescence – human or otherwise – director Mary Harron (in the most movie spoiler kind of way) pours cold water over it in this effort. Also armed with Sapphic undertones, jealousy, a rather compelling question and not to mention all the necessary ingredients for a proper vampire thriller – blood, sex (some), death – ‘The Moth Diaries’ has some potential but the subject matter was just too much of a challenge to put on screen. Even its purposed links to the classic 1872 novella ‘Carmilla’ cant save it. The movie just isnt very entertaining or scary and it certainly could have benefited with a better visual treatment, a bit of character development, a straight-up plot and more carefully crafted scenes. Well then, there’s always that OTHER vampire movie coming out at the end of the year. ‘The Moth Diaries’ open in theatres 21 Junehttp://movies.insing.com/feature/movie-review-the-moth-diaries/id-df513f00 Page 2 of 4
