One of the year’s best. And that’s saying something in the horror genre of 2022.
What makes this clock tick and the tension tear through you as the viewer is how well developed and sympathetic the characters are.
The other thing that puts this film over the top is that it does a fantastic job of showing instead of telling the audience. The visuals are so well executed that they instill a sense of dread that is palpable in the air of the theater. Just when a glimmer of hope appears on the horizon, you soon realize that it’s a mirage in a desert of despair, and we’re in for another twist or turn in this wild ride.
Such originality and respect for the audience and for the craft… brilliantly done!
