You Should Have Left

You Should Have Left should have left our nerves frayed and our dreams haunted but instead, it leaves us cold.

Even at 93 minutes, the material feels thin, and so does its moral message. But the movie's goofy, blunt-edged claustrophobia may also be its greatest gift to viewers...

What You Should Have Left lacks—and what The Shining and even portions of James Wan’s Insidious and Scott Derrickson’s Sinister possess—is a sense of mounting chaos and insanity.

The film leaves for a climactic twist something it really should have made a whole meal out of exploring.

If our heroes "should have left" this too-big villa while they had the choice, Blumhouse should also know when to move on, and not book this enjoyable but unexceptional thriller for a second stay.

The project's claustrophobic scale otherwise feels well-suited to consumption on a home screen.

Bacon holds it steady, setting up residence in an uneasy, unwell character, unconcerned with making him likable or worth rooting for — the kind of person who gets left behind, and with good reason.

The movie won’t disturb your dreams, but it grabs hold of you and keeps tugging.

At the top, I teased a unique angle on a haunted house tale. However, to go into that would be to spoil a third act that is a deranged and dizzying delight.
