The Curse of Bridge Hollow – Netflix’s October Surprise

The release of The Curse of Bridge Hollow on Netflix in October is seasonally appropriate. The autumnal feelings and joyful yet spooky sentiments that are normally associated with a kid-friendly version of Halloween serve as their basis. Due to this, any tendency to view things critically is diminished, and the impulse to simply go with the flow and have fun is high. Unfortunately, The Curse of Bridge Hollow has many problems that make it difficult to enjoy the holiday pleasures unencumbered.

In The Curse of Bridge Hollow, Howard Gordon (Marlon Wayans) is a science teacher who loves his daughter Sydney (Priah Ferguson), but he has trouble understanding her. When she wants to take ballet classes and move to the city instead of self-defense classes and stay living in their small town, they start having conflicts.

The most recent conflict is a result of Sydney’s belief in the supernatural. After discovering the town’s overtly sinister history, she attempts to warn her father of impending danger. However, Howard has trouble believing in supernatural occurrences; Even after seeing numerous Halloween decorations come to life, he feels there must be a rational explanation and chaos ensues.

Netflix has been offering horror films for some years now, but this year they have released originals that are squarely targeted at younger consumers.

seasons ago, the residents of Bridge Hollow killed a man known as Stingy Jack. But the Devil gave him a lantern so he could return every Halloween to take revenge. Now, Stingy Jack is back and using his decorations to bring terror to the town. Sydney and her father Howard must work together to stop him before it’s too late.

The Curse of Bridge Hollow is a family-friendly horror comedy with overtones of the Goosebumps film. It has light scares combined with humorous quips that are intended mainly for younger kids, but it was created by horror lovers, so there are plenty of references for the adults watching as well. What helps director Jeff Wadlow keep the action moving quickly is Stingy Jack begins causing havoc at the 20-minute mark and follows up with a series of gruesome set pieces interspersed with information dumps to continue the plot progression. Although none of its novel content, it is entertainingly executed nonetheless.

Wadlow aims for laughs with his undead Halloween decorations, rather than scares–unless you’re afraid of clowns, that is. If you don’t find Marlon Wayans funny, you might deem the humor here too cheesy. But it’s undeniable that Wadlow commits to the film’s more ridiculous moments.
