HipsterZOMBIEJoint Movie Review: Welcome To Blumhouse – Nocturne

When you can’t beat your sibling at something, strike a deal with an evil entity. At least that’s the basic idea behind Welcome to Blumhouse – Nocturne.

The film is directed by Zu Quirke and stars Sydney Sweeney, Madison Iseman, Jacques Colimon and Ivan Shaw. Jason Blum serves as a producer under his Blumhouse Television banner.

As children, twin sisters, Juliet and Vivian loved playing the piano. By the time it comes to graduate high school, and as the final performance of the year beckons, Vivian’s achievements have overshadowed any hopes and aspirations Juliet may have had.

For Juliet, living as an understudy to her sister has meant seeing her dedication go unrecognized, while Vivian flirts with the adulation of her tutors, cohorts and sexual conquests. 

With her self confidence plummeting, Juliet happens upon the diary of a recently deceased classmate. This discovery sets off a chain of events which seemingly begin to swing the pendulum her way.

It’s revealed that the student who passed had made some kind of pact with an evil entity. When Juliet makes the same kind of deal she becomes haunted by mysterious visions. Just as she gets every thing she desires (at the expense of those around her) she realizes she has to pay the long overdue price of the deal she made with the entity.

The way scenes are cut and edited along an nerving score makes Nocturne one of the most scary entries in Welcome To Blumhouse. The film is like a fever dream and the ending is so haunting it will stick with you long after you have watched it.

The HipsterZOMBIEJoint Experience highly recommends YOU DEVOUR Nocturne streaming now on Amazon Prime.
