After tickling us consistently with her goofy characters in the Scary Movie franchise, Regina Hall is back with a serious, multi-layered horror film. Master, Amazon Prime's latest, not only spooks us with supernatural and psychological scares, but also the horrors of racism prevalent in our society.
They are: Gail Bishop (Regina Hall), the first Black master of one of the residential houses of the college; Jasmine Moore (Zoe Renee), a freshman; and Liv Beckman (Amber Gray), a professor who is seeking tenure.
Let's see what viewers are saying about this horror social commentary:
1.Master is the director's first feature and it seems to be quite a success.
2.The real horror doesn't lie in some dark corner or a creepy room with a creaking door. It lies out in the open, in front of everyone.
3.Good to see that the people are noticing the subliminal themes.
4.Unsurprisingly, some are feeling confused as the movie leaves some questions unanswered.
5.Ella Hunt does a good job in the film.
6.Some were hoping for a good old witch haunting movie (probably like Fear Street trilogy).
7.The movie seems to have got the real life situation quite correctly.
8.This is something which almost all the viewers, despite their different opinions about the movie, agree upon.
9.Several viewers felt like the premise resonated.
10.For some, Regina Hall was the prime attraction of the film.
11.Regina Hall has certainly proved that she can handle serious horror movies quite well.
13.Seriously, many of us would quit.
14.Zoe Renee's character deserved a better ending.
15.Even the very people who can relate with what Jasmine is facing, let her down.
16.There's at least one person who can empathize with Jasmine.
17.Some people felt that the movie had a defeatist message.
18.Not everyone loved the ending.
19.And some viewers were totally mad at the movie and the bleak fate of its characters.
