Tags: Book Adaptation, Low Jump Scare

Jump Scares:  3 (0 major, 3 minor)

Jump Scare Rating: More of a psychological thriller than horror although some of the night scenes are scary. The sudden appearance of the Moonlight Man at 42:00, 1:06:42, 1:24:40, 1:27:07, and 1:30:23 might cause some alarm to sensitive viewers. A couple of these moments verge on jump scare territory but a lack of an accompanying sound effect lessens their impact.
