For starters I know what you’re thinking. Another thriller about someone being chased by a murderer. But to be honest I feel this movie has so much more to offer.
As the movie begins, it’s dark at night in a coastal mansion, a woman named Cecilia is trying to escape. The film doesn’t quite go into detail at that time, but it points that her husband is abusive towards her. She gets away and is rescued by her sister. The film returns to Cecilia two weeks later upon learning that her husband has since committed suicide. Now living with a police officer for protection, she is yet to feel completely safe as strange things start to happen. Now this is where the movie really starts to ramp up. The director Leigh Whannel is quite the master for twists and turns, as well as the extremely intense feelings you have when you watch. His previous works include SAW, Insidious and Upgrade so if you have seen any of these then you know what your in for. The only issue I feel towards this movie is that once the middle of the film has taken place then it kind of loses its magic, there is not much more to reveal. But leading up to it is mind-blowing. Now this movie is lengthy for its genre but sitting through it isn’t hard. Most definitely not for the little ones but that is obvious. All together not bad, one of Leigh Whannel’s best works.
