Underrated Psycho-Horror

2 years, 5 months ago at Aug 19 17:44
British filmmaker Sean Ellis' 2008 horror film, "The Broken," is a seriously underrated, twisted little puzzle-box of a movie that refuses to let you go and will inspire discussion after the credits have rolled.

Sure, it rips concepts from other horror films (parallels to "The Shining" run throughout) and doesn't contain as many scares as it should, but "The Broken" is so much b... read more

On a busy street in London, Gina (Lena Headey) thinks she sees herself drive past in her own car. Stunned by this strange event, Gina follows the mystery woman up to her apartment. From here, events take an eerie turn for the worse until Gina's awareness slides from solid reality into a world that will haunt more than just her nightmares.

Underrated Psycho-Horror

“British filmmaker Sean Ellis' 2008 horror film, "The Broken," is a seriously underrated, twisted little puzzle-box of a movie that refuses to let you go and will inspire discussion after the credits have rolled.

Sure, it rips concepts from other horror films (parallels to "The Shining" run throughout) and doesn't contain as many scares as it should, but "The Broken" is so much better than other films of it's kind and deserves more attention than it gets.

Radiologist Gina McVey ("Game Of Thrones"'s Queen Bi**h and resident brother-f**ker, Lena Headey) drives home from work one day to see her double drive past her. Horrified and intrigued (and not clever enough to leave freaky s**t like this alone,) Gina follows the woman, only to lose her.

"First viewing - Xanadon't recommendations night pt. 3 Ah and so we go from thoughts of broken to The Broken, which I also had issues with & almost gave up on. The pacing throughout the first half was so ploddingly slow I started to fall asleep & was wondering if anything would ever happen. And then things DID start happening, and it wound up being a more intense experience with a rewarding ending. I notice now that Xanadon't's comments in his July movie journal mention it being a slow-burner, a"

Monthly Movie Journal: July 2011 (45 movies items)

" "The Broken details a woman (Headey) who finds herself, and her friends, being stalked by doppelgangers (or something worse) following a horrible car accident. The film does take a few cues from Mirrors and Invasion of the Body Snatchers, but builds itself up in a very unique, refreshing way. Essentially brewing to a slow boil, The Broken offers only a handful of jump scares, gorgeously atmospheric cinematography, and a few moments of fairly disturbing gore. Shots are drawn out and entire seq"
