My ratings change a lot and I don’t use half stars.
Short films not rated.
Somehow, for 18 years, I’d avoided knowing the twist at the end of this so it still came as a shock when it was revealed. But this is genuinely one of the most suspense driven movies I’ve seen... ever? Scary from start to finish with great performances from all the cast and the ever fantastic direction of David Fincher make this a total classic worth rewatching almost 25 years from its release.
Horror is a genre I've really fallen out of love with. In fact when people ask me what my least favourite film genres are I'd probably reply with action & horror in a heartbeat. That mostly comes from the saturation of both those markets. Horror films feel so formulaic nowadays. Doors creak, hands appear and there's a few loud noises for good measure, but it's all so... predictable. That said every now and them something comes along that reinvigorates my love…
