Director: Leigh Whannell
When Cecilia’s abusive ex takes his own life and leaves her his fortune, she suspects his death was a hoax. As a series of coincidences turn lethal, Cecilia works to prove that she is being hunted by someone nobody can see.
Faith in movies restored!!! After seeing several 5-6/10 movies the last couple of weeks I have begun to fear that I had lost my passion for movies (this has happened before). But holy crap this changed my mind and really took me by surprise, what a masterpiece. From the first minute till the end it keeps up the suspense and you’re emotional invested in Elisabeth Moss character Cecilias fate.
Some might think, 10 out of 10, isn’t that a little high? I say hell NO! It kept my interest up for the whole 124 minutes without even once looking away, there are Oscars worthy acting from Elisabeth Moss, that’s simply amazing and now after watching the movie it gives me goosebumps just thinking about her performance. So there’s not a single thing I would change in the movie. My biggest problem is that I can’t wait to see it again! It’s equally amazing that the director, Leigh Whannell now in my book have two 10/10 movies in a row (Upgrade was the other one), I think that’s a record.
The film was shot at Fox Studios in Sydney and on several other locations in New South Wales, Australia.
The film was originally going to be a part of the Dark Universe, with Johnny Depp starring as the titular character, and Ed Solomon writing the screenplay, but changes were made to the Dark Universe to focus on individual storytelling and moving on from the shared universe concept after the box office failure of The Mummy (2017), which itself was an attempt to reboot the Dark Universe after the box office disappointment of Dracula Untold (2014). This film marks the first in producer Jason Blum’s attempt to reboot the Universal Studios ‘Monster Universe’.
Due to the closure of movie theaters during the COVID-19 pandemic, Universal announced that the movie was available to rent from Friday 20th March 2020 with 48-hour viewing windows for $19.99
