So I continued watching, but the movie just kept on trotting in the same monotonous slow pace with very little happening.

The Influence is based on a story by Ramsey Campbell but is in some ways reminiscent of Hereditary particularly in plot development but is more unevenly paced and is pretty much a slow burner.

Even when you think the finale is coming the story continues with another boring and partly unnecessary 15 minutes.

And another thirty to discover that it is possible to make an unbearable film.

What you get is every cliche of every horror film you've ever seen thrown together with a weak narrative.

Cliche filled and not scary at all .

The movie is boring, and even compressed to like 60 minutes could be to much, the house ambient is the only good part, the rest is cliche ans boring, maybe the Spanish Director wants to get a dose of terror movies of last 10 years; ohhh and common what a bad "demon" hurr killing a dog...

However, the ending is still good and this is a movie that's well worth watching.

This movie is phenomenally boring and slow paced.

Everything in the movie up till the point I turned it off was cliche laden, boring crap and I called the ending even though I didn't see the ending.

Don't waste your time with this movie.

This is Director Denis Rovira van Boekholt's first feature film and caveats aside is entertaining and scarifying.

Boring and useless, incredibly lame.

Bad and boring .

I have zero interest in returning to watch the rest of the movie, because I simply didn't care one bit about the storyline, and the characters in the movie were so mundane and pointless that they were just a hazy blur actually.

Don't waste your time.

Although I'm 20 minutes into this movie before realizing it's a Spanish dubbed to English movie, I'll try to stick with it but if I fall asleep, then I know that is my barometer that it was a whack movie.

Boring and useless .

Sadly boring and un-engaging.

Unfortunately the movie is too long.

This is even too slow for the likes of me!

And as I liked that one, to be honest I found this one entertaining and curious as well.

TLDR: don't waste your time.

Engaging n thrilling .

slow paced, not much excitement, predictable development .

Bad acting, pointless and confucing dialogue.

Man, this movie was a bore.

I didn't find this to be a slow burn as some have sugggested, but I found it to be very disjointed and didn't pace well.
