Lucky ★★★½

Shudder Film #16

“I got you a killer advance.”

Shudder's secret Halloween movie (showing on their TV channel) ended up being Lucky directed by Natasha Kermani and starring and written by hot horror "it" girl of the moment, Brea Grant (who also wrote/directed 12 Hour Shift).

Brea Grant plays "May", a best-selling business writer telling everyone what to do with their lives while being completely plagued with problems with her husband and a nightly intruder. The police don't take her seriously and neither do we, as the intruder supernaturally still exists even though he should be dead after what May puts him through.

Call it Kafka-esque. Call it existential. Call it a metaphor for how women are treated. Just sit back and enjoy this larger than life female-led horror.
