    IFI Horrorthon Part 3 

    Movie: Sweetie, You Won’t Believe It

    Country: Kazakhstan 

    Plot: Looking to escape his nagging and heavily pregnant wife, a man goes on a fishing trip with his two best bros, until they run afoul of an eccentric crime family and a mysterious killing machine

    Review: A modestly enjoyable experience but easily the weakest of my Horrorthon Day 1 movies. There are genuinely funny moments and some good action, but there’s something too Todd Phillips-y about it for my liking

    IFI Horrorthon Part 2

    Movie: Midnight 

    Country: South Korea 

    Plot: After inadvertently saving another person from a serial killer, a deaf woman finds herself the killer’s next target. 

    Review: Here’s a taut, we’ll paced, genuinely surprising thriller buoyed by some excellent performances. It’s Korean, so naturally it includes some batshit twists and turns (perhaps a few too many for my liking). If some of the plot contrivances feel a little forced, it doesn’t do much to lessen the overall impact. First time director Kwon Oh-Seung is a talent to watch out for
