    47 Meters Down

    ★★★

    Despite the fact the characters had literally no depth (no pun intended), and most of the stuff above the water was pretty cliché and boring, when this really gets going I thought it was scary as hell.

    One of the most impressive King adaptations, and I would say it's the best performance for basically every cast member in this thing.

    I love the way it expresses the need for friendship, bravery, freedom, and above all - hope.
