Love Leigh Whannell and and Elizabeth Moss so of course loved this. Very effective to the point that I felt real anxiety watching... which means mission accomplished on the filmmaker's part. I honestly feel Moss deserves an Academy Awards nomination for this. She delivers on all levels.
Shot by Stefan Duscio who also shot Upgrade on Arri Alexa with Arri Signature Prime Lenses. Looks gorgeous. The one scene that was too digital for me was the attic scene... that single light source for some reason reveals the digital nature.
Overall, very impressive especially when I heard what the budget is. Extremely low. This is a very promising beginning to the Universal Monster re-imagining reboot series. Looking forward to more.
Watched at DGA Theater 1, Los Angeles. Whannell was present for a q&a and it was a blast. He revealed that he had a few drinks just prior down at El Compadre and he was full of humor and great anecdotes.
