A platoon of South Korean soldiers falls victim to a curse while searching the jungle for the source of a mysterious distress call.
My thoughts: A lot of interesting horror elements that never really come together in the end.
The Cleansing Hour (2019)
Two entrepreneurs stage elaborate fake exorcisms until one of their girlfriends becomes possessed by a demon.
My thoughts: A solid premise, but the characters are frustratingly slow on the uptake. Some solid effects and a good final twist but, too often, the humor undermines the horror.
Always Shine (2016)
While on an isolated retreat, two actresses discover that their once intimate friendship has deteriorated into forced conversations, betrayals, petty jealousies, and deep-seated resentment.
My thoughts: An oddly constructed thriller centered on two clearly unhinged actresses and their toxic friendship. The tension builds in the film’s first hour, then completely dissipates in the meandering closing thirty. Pretty much devoid of scares.
