If you've been following my posts so far, you know that I really like to get into the Halloween season. Yesterday I was looking through the possible horror movies I could watch, and Netflix suggested I watch this film. I gave it a shot, and it's incredible!
It heavily pays homage to the 1980s horror genre - from the music that's played, to the font style of the credits. Everything about the movie simply felt as if it was released about 25 years ago (in a good way).
The problem with horror movies today is that they obviously rely too much on gore and loud surprise noises. This movie does neither, and relies heavily on bringing the audience slowly but surely into the story by gradually raising the tension as the movie goes along.
I don't want to give too much away, but this movie is a great horror film because it's actually horror. Too many "scary" movies these days are actually terror. This movie is actually very horrifying, because the way it's directed, you really feel the same emotions as the main character as you're brought into the setting.
It was a great surprise for me, and if you're looking for something to add to your Instant Queue on this Halloween eve, you're not going to do too much better on Netflix than by streaming this movie. I enjoyed it, and I hope you do too. We suggest it because it certainly was a surprise to us!
