Smoke rises. While the fire was in the basement, Rose should have still been able to smell it in her upstairs room. Only the noise of the car driving away from the home alerted her to any problems and this was between 10-15 minutes of film time from the fire starting. See more »
Bottom line, as a horror movie it was not scary. As a psychological thriller, it was completely unbelievable and devoid of any real world research or knowledge. As a mystery, it was not a mystery and extremely obvious. The allegory (which was intended), was completely racist and not ashamed to say so right to your face... white people are evil and apparently that group likes to exploit blacks. Which, in todays world, is completely bologna. All groups exploit every other including their own (blacks especially), so in other words its not a race problem, its a societal problem (caused by bad economic and social policies but that is a argument for another time).
I think people saw what they wanted to see and not what was actually shown. Most of the reviews are clearly not objective and very emotionally driven because the reviewer agreed with the allegory (the reviewer already had an opinion and the movie reinforced it). Rather than talk about the quality of the movie, they talk about symbolism as if the authors and directors are geniuses of some sort. They aren't and since most psychology is monkey business as has been proved time and again in the real world by psychiatrists (real doctors and researchers) there was nothing left of the movie but a hallow shell.
Skip it if you have a functioning brain. You will be bored to tears and you will spot every statistical and logical error of which there are so many that the movie became comical.
