Hush ★★★★

A homicidal guy stalks a deaf woman in her remote house and this is pretty much exactly what you want this movie to be if you want this movie. Been thinking a lot about the overused term "elevated horror" and how it seems to be willfully misconstrued with "good horror". For instance, IT COMES AT NIGHT is too proud to be horror so it's "elevated horror" and bad. HUSH, by contrast, is not too proud to be horror so it's not "elevated horror" and good. Three for three so far with Mike Flanagan (OCULUS, OUIJA: ORIGIN OF EVIL, and this). Where to next?
