Kids say (4 ):

Despite a solid, if not very original premise, this horror movie never manages to build up much momentum, dread, or excitement. Nocturne (2020) is pretty slow paced, and expect lots of shots of piano playing in between disturbing images. The biggest problem, though, is that almost every twist or event is broadcast well ahead of time, so the only real surprises are the visual ones, and they aren't all that strong, either. Fans of horror movies are likely to be disappointed, and it's unlikely to win anyone over who wasn't already a fan.
