    Trust

    ★★★

    Online sexual predators are not nearly as big a scare these days as they were a few years ago; of course they are still a threat, but people are much more aware now and it’s less of a shocking thing. Trust shows its age through its seemingly innocent view of the world; where they have just discovered this issue and they want the unknowing public to understand it properly.

    ★★★

    I was expecting more of a horror film going into this, but found it was really more of a black comedy with some horror elements. We follow Warren Thompson as he goes about a regular day and he’s obviously a very lonely man and possibly a little crazy. He’s very soft-spoken and has a limp, and fits the mold of an introverted character that’s going to go off the rails at any moment. It’s somewhat cliche, but Maynard’s performance prevents…
