Beautiful Creatures Is The Beautiful Merging Of The Craft And Twilight But With Emma Thompson
By Alex Cranz
Was I the only one missing a new Twilight ripoff starring Emma Thompson, the underrated Emmy Rossum, Jeremy Irons and Viola Davis? Because this movie totally exists and it looks like everyone is going full on pulp version of Southern Gothic.
Beautiful Creatures, not to be confused with the murderous lesbian coming of age story from Peter Jackson, follows a teenage girl who has to become either good or evil when she turns 16. She wants to be good but badass ladies in her life want her to be evil, and also it looks like if she loves a boy who isn’t witchy she’ll turn evil or something. I’m not real clear on the plot because I was too busy basking in the warmth of Emma Thompson’s southern accent and obvious delight at playing a villain.
