Corona Lockdown Movie Reviews:
Feels like an oddly close miss. A surprisingly good cast slum around an awkwardly paced and scripted ironic comedy that has potential but never fully hits a stride.
Six writers is never a good sign on a non-anthology movie, it smacks of "It's not working, more writing!"
Abel Ferrara is not one of my favourite directors the man has pulled a few great movies out of nothing but his sloppy style is incredibly hit or miss.
Starting right off with a Tell-Dont-Show voice-over that rather blandly feeds us the setup for stuff that doesn't matter and could have been done with the characters having a conversation.
80's Australian horrors are always of a certain look and type.
There's something awkward about them. People talk unnaturally, there's weird off kilter elements that just work to create tension and an uneasy tone.
The movie is very slow paced with some incredibly brutal editing leading to sudden scene changes which I'm sure was intentional to keep you off balance. It's a shame there wasn't more of the overt scares, what there was was effective but it could have done…
