An undead teenage girl befriends a blind boy that she meets in a forest she haunts and hunts in. Both have been victims of unimaginable abuse, and each finds solace in the other. There may be a chance of light at the end of their tunnel, but it will come with a body count.

When Simon brings his twelve year-old son, Finn, to rural Vermont to help flip an old farmhouse, they encounter the malicious spirit of Lydia, a previous owner. And now with every repair they make - she's getting stronger.
A brilliant man marries a beautiful woman and shows her his home, stating that it's all hers - except a room she can't enter. First chance she enters and discovers what might be human cloning. When the husband returns she pays the price.
I watched this without knowing what it was beforehand, initially it seemed to be a pretty poor melodrama, then it transforms into a kind of muddled, messy thriller.
I'd give it plaudits for its ability to surprise, you couldn't accuse it of being bland, I had no idea of outcome or plot. I did really like the twist in the end.
Sadly there are way more negatives then positives, the biggest, being the lack of reality. Not many people I know can fall off a cliff, get up ten minutes later and run through a forest, sadly the absurdities continue right the way through the film.
I was struck by how much Jackie seemed like a cheap rip off of Villanelle from Killing Eve.
It could have been good, but it's all been done before many times, just way better. 5/10
