As a great lover of horror movies, it was with a jolt that I realised that A Quiet Place is the first horror movie I have seen in the cinema. And at first, I thought I’d made a huge mistake: the cinema was crawling with people. And this was supposed to be a film watched in silence, I was well aware. Perhaps I should have waited for it to come out on Netflix. I love horror. In the least pretentious way possible, I want a pure experience of a movie.
As an avid movie-goer and psychological-thriller fanatic, I was incredibly excited to find out that Paula Hawkins’s The Girl on the Train was being adapted into a film. Told from the perspective of Rachel Watson (Emily Blunt), Megan Hipwell (Haley Bennett), and Anna Watson (Rebecca Ferguson), the voices of these three women are woven together to create a complex and disturbingly brilliant masterpiece.
