Really loved this political thriller. The drama and tension is 100% dialogue based and Frankenheimer's direction makes it so intense. Serling’s script is wonderful in that it moves the story along briskly and with dialogue that is so immersive and engaging. Loved it.Will be reviewing it in a special "between seasons" ep of my solo podcast Anth […]
Impressive debut from a technical and tonal perspective. I enjoyed the slow burn and was engaged with the family dynamic and the grandmother's deteriorating mental state. Surprisingly, when the movie shifts to a more terror laden haunted house story, my interest dropped quite a bit.
Pretty cool creature feature. The first reveal of the creature is really freaking cool. Good suspense, strong protagonist (Kiersey Clemons nails the quiet, sole survivor performance through a big chunk of the movie).
