An Edgar Wright film is always a treat. The camerawork and the editing is always great. I love Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz and Baby Driver. This film is no exception. It all looks amazing and is never boring. Last Night in Soho is his first real horror film (not counting the horror comedy Shaun), and you can see he enjoys the hell out of it. He adores the filmmakers from the past and it shows.
However, I didn't scare me. Without spoiling something, Wright has one trick that he keeps repeating. Again, it looks amazing, and it's horror, but it isn't scary. Also, the ending I found to be a bit disappointing. That being said, I really love the idea of someone romanticizing a decade, in this case the sixties, to find out it wasn't all that great. Especially for women.
An original film from a great director/writer that leads the way for more horror, I hope. Just don't do superhero movies please.
