Synopsis

Location: Alhambra

There's something really special about a movie that, with its final moments, makes you re-think everything that's come before it. Sometimes it feels like cheating, the "it was all a dream" movie endings are more infuriating than almost anything you can throw on a screen, but when done effectively, it can be a great point of discussion. Such is the case with The Last Will and Testament of Rosalind Leigh. The film is a great watch, a haunted house thriller that succeeds in its scares and will stay with you long after the final credits roll. It doesn't hurt that the final voiceover will leave you itching to see the movie again. One of the most striking aspects of the film is the prevalence of a voice-over, performed by Vanessa Redgrave which acts almost as a second narrative.
