Chloë Grace Moretz plays a young woman trying to survive in New York City soon after the death of her mother. She does a good deed that places her in the orbit of a recently-widowed pianist named Greta, played by the unstoppable [Isabelle] Huppert. And from there, things get stranger and more sinister for a while, before the extent of Huppert’s craziness is unveiled — While it might be a surprise that Huppert signed on, it’s hardly a shock that her Greta is surpassingly creepy. Moretz makes for an admirable (if occasionally dimwitted in that way that horror protagonists are) damsel in distress, while Maika Monroe as the skeptical roommate has some of the film’s most delicious moments.” – Steve Pond / The Wrap
