A good movie

Since I kept hearing some really good things about this movie, I was really eager to check it out. Well, to be honest, I actually ended up with pretty much the same feeling I had with ‘Get Out’ which was another massively heralded horror flick released last year. Indeed, with both movies, the directing and acting were both really solid, it was really entertaining but, somehow, it still didn’t really blow me though. I mean, sure, the concept was pretty neat and it was really nice to see a really good movie dealing with mutes after the terribly underwhelming ‘Mute’ from Duncan Jones but, at the end of the day, it was still a gimmick after all. Indeed, even though the characters did their best to be as silent as possible and even though they went through some massive precautions to remain safe, you know that, at some point, one of them will made some noise because, otherwise, there wouldn’t be a story to tell and it made the whole thing rather predictable. Still, I have to admit that it was a bold move to make a horror movie with barely any (spoken) dialog and, just after I was done watching this flick, I was suddenly so aware of the sounds around me and the sounds I was making myself which was just really neat. Anyway, to conclude, even if I didn’t think that it was really a masterpiece, it was still a really solid horror movie and it is definitely worth a look, especially if you want to see something original.
