YMMV / The Turning

  • Audience-Alienating Ending: Lots of reviews cite the ending as the film's ultimate downfall, with many recommending others not to waste their time because it's very abrupt, confusing and unsatisfactory (given the film's lackluster box office returns, it would seem audiences took this advice). It was trying for an Ambiguous Ending in the same vein as the original novella, leaving it open-ended as to whether there were really ghosts or the protagonist was just mentally ill, but it ends up feeling unfinished more than anything.
