Lovely Molly (2011)
Newlywed Molly moves into her deceased father’s house in the countryside, where painful memories soon begin to haunt her.
My thoughts: There are some truly unnerving moments here as the film walks the fine line between psychological and supernatural. The fact that it never ultimately lands on neither makes for an unsatisfying conclusion.
The Call (2020)
Two people live in different times. Seo-Yeon lives in the present and Young-Sook lives in the past. One phone call connects the two, and their lives are changed irrevocably.
My thoughts: This one is pretty bananas in its treatment of time travel and alternate timelines, but once you accept the rules, it works pretty well…until its inconsistent and illogical twist ending.
A normal Friday service at a fast food restaurant becomes interrupted by a police officer who claims an employee stole from a customer, but something more sinister is going on.
My thoughts: Shocking and disturbing – all the more so given that the film is based on actual events.
A woman subject to mental and physical abuse on a remote island seeks a way out.
My thoughts: Brutal on both sides of the equation. Revenge is sweet.
The Invisible Man (2020)
When Cecilia’s abusive ex takes his own life, 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.
My thoughts: A smart and suspenseful modern-day reimagining – minus the questionable logic at movie’s end.
