Slow burn horror film about two girls at a boarding school left during break because their parents failed to pick them up. Simple story, yet this film leaves you guessing what it’s all about. Keep an eye on director Oz Perkins, I think there more good stuff to come in the future. 7/10.
What do you get when you strap a GoPro to a bunch of Russian stuntmen? You get the most intense POV action film that you’ve ever seen. If you’ve seen Ilya Naishuller’s previous work, the Youtube music video Biting Elbows: Bad Motherf*cker, then you have some idea of what to expect. And despite sitting too close to the screen and getting a bit nauseous, I still loved it. And Sharlto Copley is tremendous as well. Yes it is dizzying, yes it is too much, yes it is too much awesome. 9/10.
Artist and his family move into a house that is… foreboding. Excellent execution of a simple story. I loved the performances and the look of the film, but ultimately doesn’t offer much that is new and original. 6/10.
